Every year a representative for C-SPAN comes and has a presentation at the winner's school and presents them with their reward. Since Carl is homeschooled, though, C-SPAN came to our homeschool co-op, SEEK. We were all very excited the morning of this presentation. A man from the Cary Town Council, Jack Smith, attended as well as Keith Poston from Time Warner Cable. The presentation started with the representative for C-SPAN, Rachel Katz. The tech people in the back played Carl's video and then Jack Smith spoke a bit about Carl's documentary and topic and congratulated Carl. Next Keith Poston spoke a bit about Carl's accomplishment and how Carl's video will be on demand for Time Warner Cable after the interview is aired on C-SPAN. Carl was then awarded with a certificate with a case and a big check (something he really wanted)!!!!!
Carl's reaction during the phone call from C-SPAN telling him that he had won the grand prize!
Watch Carl's video and interview on C-SPAN on Wednesday, April 27!!! (Video - 6:50 AM ET, Interview - 9:15 AM ET)
