Three young ladies from McKinley Middle Charter School in Racine, Wisconsin took the grand prize this year for C-SPAN’s annual documentary competition. Over 1,000 students submitted a video on either a topic about one of the US’ greatest strengths or a challenge the country is facing.
The challenge the three ladies chose was how the US should meet its future energy consumption. The solution that they came to, of course, was nuclear.
For part of the documentary, they interviewed Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore, anti-nuclear activist Helen Caldicott, former NRC commissioner Dale Klein, and Tom Meston from Westinghouse. Plus, they added a few hilarious clips from The Simpsons and others to show the misperceptions about nuclear. Not only that, the excellent choice of music brought it all together.
Congrats to a well done video and the rewards!
