The StudentCam interview will be submitted to C-SPAN's annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think critically about issues that affect their communities and the nation. The students’ interest focused on the pros and cons of the ports’ breakwaters, and sought to answer questions such as “What are the pros and cons of the breakwater economically and environmentally?” and “Are there, or have there been, alternate options to the breakwater that have been considered?”
