C-SPAN's StudentCam Grand Prize Winners

As covered here on the blog last week, three 8th grade students from McKinley Middle Charter School (Racine, WI) are this year's Grand Prize winners in C-SPAN's StudentCam competition for their video on nuclear energy. The young filmmakers, Madison Richards, Samantha Noll and Lauren Nixon, appeared on Washington Journal Tuesday morning to discuss their winning entry, "I've Got the Power."

They were joined by NEI's Senior Project Manager, Kathryn Gerlach.


While we're plugging C-SPAN programming, this is a perfect opportunity to point readers to network's newly launched video library. The fully searchable archive contains nearly every minute of programming that C-SPAN has broadcast since 1987. That's over 160,000 hours of wonky bliss; available on demand. On cue and in the queue: every appearance by NEI.

I liked the way that even the more vitriolic anti-nuclear callers felt obliged to preface their comments with praise for the girls. There has to be a way of utilising this phenomenon more fully in favour of nuclear power advocacy.

Goodness gracious the WISDOM from Madison Richards 16:40 in regards to the promise of the LMBR/Thorium technology. That is a Smart Girl!
