They chose 15th amendment and created a 7:41 minute long documentary. The title of the documentary is: “An American Right Not Used Enough

There were 2985 entries from 46 states, as well as Washington DC, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates.  5,700 students participated in this StudentCam competition.

Their documentary is the first movie amongst the Honorable mentions and they will receive $250 cash prize.  Their entry is the only one from Mississippi that made it to Honorable mentions.  We are so proud of them!
