KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -

Farragut Middle School students will learn about the programs and resources available through C-SPAN during a bus tour and several local winners of the StudentCam 2013 documentary competition will be recognized.    

The C-SPAN bus is now in its 20th year on the road and visiting numerous cities, schools and universities across the country. C-SPAN presents three public affairs television networks in both SD and HD; C-SPAN Radio, heard in Washington, D.C., and nationwide via XM Satellite Radio; and a video-rich website that hosts the C-SPAN Video Library.      

The StudentCam 2013 documentary competition invited middle and high school students to create a five-to-eight-minute video on the most important issue that the government should address this year.

Farragut had a first-prize winner and three third-prize winning entries in the contest.
