by MCS Staff

Parim Shah and Nimay Sharma, sixth grade students at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School in Germantown, won the grand prize in this year’s C-SPAN 2023 StudentCam documentary competition. They will receive $5,000 for their documentary, “Where’s My Data? Data Privacy and its Real World Impact.” Students were asked to create a documentary on the theme, “If you were a newly elected member of Congress, which issue would be your first priority and why?”

The annual competition was open to middle and high school students across the nation. Students from eight schools—Montgomery Blair, Winston Churchill, Poolesville, Richard Montgomery and Rockville high schools, and Eastern, Martin Luther King and Westland middle schools—placed in the competition. See the full list. The winning documentary will air on C-SPAN at 6:50 a.m. and throughout the day on Friday, April 21. You can also watch it here.
