Edmond Memorial High School students were winners in C-SPAN's national 2019 StudentCam competition.
Hope Suttles, Alyvea Sloan and Grace Fox will receive $250 as honorable mention winners for their documentary "Has America Changed? Obergefell v. Hodges."
Ford Burgess and Kaylynn Warren will receive $250 as honorable mention winners for their documentary "Guns and America."
Each year, C-SPAN partners with its local cable television providers to invite middle and high school students to produce short documentaries about a subject of national importance. This year, students addressed the theme "What does it mean to be American? Choose a constitutional right, national characteristic, or historic event and explain how it defines the American experience."
Edmond Memorial's winners were among 340 students across the country winning a total of $100,000.
