Three CWTV students earned honorable mention status in the annual C-SPAN StudentCam nationwide student film documentary contest.  Eriel Gaylord, Sammy Saldana and Melany Davila filmed and produced a 6-minute documentary on “America’s Homeless.”

It focuses on homeless students in Berks County, including those in the LGBT community and features interviews from county-wide advocates for ending homelessness.

Over 6,318 students participated in the contest and a total of 2,923 entries were received this year, all relating to the competition theme of “What does it mean to be American? Choose a constitutional right, national characteristic or historic event and explain how it defines the American experience.”

CWTV student winners will share a $250 prize for their honorable mention status.  Nationwide, 340 students won a total of $100,000 in the contest, which included one grand prize winner, four first prize winners, 16 second prize winners and 32 third prize winners.
