As you may know, this year's StudentCam competition asked students to create a 5-8 documentary on the topic of the Constitution and why it is important to them. Each morning during the month of April we featured interviews with the top 27 prize winning film makers on C-SPAN's morning program, Washington Journal.

Today's interview with Grand Prize winner Matthew Shimura discussing his video about due process and the Japanese-American internment during World War II marked the culmination of this year's competition.

Grand Prize winner Matthew Shimura with Sen. Daniel Inouye on due process and Japanese Internment.

First Prize High School winner Carl Colglazier and Attorney Daniel Brenner on intellectual property rights and patents.

First Prize Middle School winner Leo Pfeifer and Newseum CEO James Duff on free speech and freedom of the press.

You can view each of the 27 interviews, as well as each of the 75 winning documentaries, on the StudentCam website:

A warm thank you to all who participated in the competition this year and stay tuned for the announcement of the StudentCam 2013 theme, coming soon, in May!
