A documentary made by a student at Canterbury Middle School in Fort Wayne won an honorable mention prize in C-SPAN's 2018 StudentCam competition.
The public affairs TV network announced Wednesday that eighth-grader Vonnia Anwar will receive $250 for her short documentary titled "Branching into New Medicine," in which she looks at moral and legal issues surrounding embryonic stem cell research.
C-SPAN said it received nearly 3,000 video submissions from more than 5,700 students nationwide. This year's theme was the U.S. Constitution.
More than 300 students split $10,000 in prizes. Anwar was among 97 students who received honorable mention awards. Her video can be seen at www.studentcam.org/winners18.htm.
