South Burlington Middle Schoolers Place 3rd in C-SPAN Contest



Three Frederick Tuttle Middle School students have won third place in a national C-SPAN StudentCam video contest. The South Burlington students — Neel Desai, Riya Patel, and Ronak Bhagat — won yesterday for their snappy, 8-minute video, "SBNN: Financial Crisis." Three classmates — Samantha Barrett, Hunter Riehle and Meghan Drouin — won "Honorable Mention" for their video, "Money Matters." The students were among more than 1900 middle and high schoolers nationwide who submitted videos.

According to a March 10 C-SPAN press release, contest organizers asked student filmmakers to address the question: "What is the most urgent issue for the new president to address after taking office, and why?” Yikes.

"Financial Crisis" will air in early April. For details, see C-SPAN's StudentCam website. And check out the video. Not bad for middle schoolers!
