Fort Wayne, IN (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Four local students had a national spotlight on them Thursday, courtesy of C-SPAN, the free TV service that broadcasts sessions of Congress.
Four eighth graders at Canterbury Middle School made video documentaries and were recognized out of more than 1,200 entries from around the country and Puerto Rico.
Two of the students studied technology and the fourth amendment.
The other two looked at judicial review, the "secret weapon" of the judiciary.
And one student says it was "what" they said and "how" they said it that made them stand out.
Canterbury 8th Grader Nicole LaRue says, “I think we made our video flow together very well and we showed different opinions of different people throughout hundreds of years.”
The four students used local authorities like judges and Sheriff Ken Fries as sources for their information.
Comcast brought an executive from C-SPAN to present the awards.
