JENKS, Oklahoma -

A Jenks High School sophomore has been announced the winner of a C-SPAN video competition. Olivia Hurd's entry is entitled "Up To Our Necks."

The theme of the Studentcam competition was "The Road to the White House."

Olivia's video made the top five, and on Wednesday, she was announced the overall winner of the competition. Her video takes on the federal debt, explaining how the country got "up to its neck" in debt.

She told 6 in the Morning anchor LeAnne Taylor that she spent a lot of time thinking and re-writing to come up with ways to make political facts interesting to the viewer. One highlight was that her grandfather, who is very politically active, got her into a Marco Rubio event so she could talk to the Florida senator.

She won $5,000 and a trip to D.C. She will appear on C-SPAN, and the C-SPAN bus will be making a stop at Jenks High School.
