Dakota Midday: C-SPAN Student Cam Winner


The C-SPAN Student Cam contest has announced winners for the 2016 theme “Road to the White House: What’s the Issue YOU Most Want Candidates to Discuss During the 2016 Presidential Election?”

Nine South Dakota students were awarded Honorable Mentions in the competition. (6,000 students entered from 45 states and Wash DC. The most popular topic addressed was the economy.) In South Dakota, C-SPAN partners with Midco.

High School senior Cassidy Stratman produced an Honorable Mention video with fellow St. Thomas More students Shannon Duffy and Maria Wilson. Stratman joins Dakota Midday with St. Thomas More social sciences teacher Tracy Friedel to discuss the video “Native Lives Matter” and why presidential hopefuls should be paying attention to the country’s indigenous population.
