Two San Diego students took home honorable mention in a national C-SPAN competition for their video about preserving national monuments.

Noel Allen and Isabella Brown, who attend Correia Middle School in Point Loma Heights, were two of more than 300 students nationwide who won prizes. Middle and high school students were charged with creating a video that shows how the federal government affects their lives.

More than 3,000 students competed and submitted videos about the environment, health care, COVID-19, immigration, firearm legislation and other topics, C-SPAN said.

Noel and Isabella won $250 for honorable mention. Their video discussed the Antiquities Act, a 1906 law that allows the U.S. president to designate national monuments for preservation. Their video featured the Cabrillo National Monument, on the Point Loma Peninsula, which preserves tidepools, the Old Point Loma Lighthouse and the old military site that was used for defense.
