C-SPAN bus visits Heritage
Heritage High School AP students aboard the C-SPAN bus

  Heritage High School students had the opportunity to step aboard the C-SPAN bus Friday when it made a stop at the school as part of a fall tour promoting C-SPAN’s educational and political resources for students, teachers and community members.


   An interactive tour of the bus gave students a peek inside the public affairs network’s new First Ladies feature series and C-SPAN’s student documentary contest, StudentCam. Features and activities on the C-SPAN bus included televisions providing in-depth public affairs coverage and educational outreach, touch-screen quizzes on C-SPAN and the three branches of government, social media networking including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, YouTube, Tout, XM Radio and mobile apps, and HD cameras and production equipment demonstrating C-SPAN’s capability to produce public affairs programming aboard the bus.



    Students also learned about C-SPAN’s StudentCam 2014 documentary competition, which has a new theme, “A Message to the U.S. Congress:What’s the most important issue the Congress should consider in 2014?”   This year C-SPAN has doubled the number of student prizes to 150 and is awarding a total of $100,000 in prize money.
