Six Alhambra High School students were honored by C-SPAN Wednesday afternoon for short documentaries on public defenders and privacy rights, taking top prizes in the television network’s national StudentCam documentary competition.

Queenie Lam, Moajarra Mosissa and Ronald Tu took third prize in this contest for “The Backbone of Our Justice System,” about public defenders. Hao Li, Amanda Yuan and Jesse Rosales got honorable mention for “Hacked America: The 4th Amendment Under Attack,” about privacy rights in the digital age. The teams received a $750 prize and a $250 prize, respectively.

“We felt like the canary in the mine,” said Jesse Rosales of his team’s documentary, referring to the recent controversy surrounding people’s Facebook data being improperly obtained by British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.

The winning students were honored in a lunchtime ceremony at Alhambra High School. They received certificates from C-SPAN, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, Alhambra Mayor Stephen Sham and the offices of State Senator Ed Hernandez and State Assemblymember Ed Chau for their achievements.
