Student DV (Digital Video) is a unique, award-winning program that includes participation from 16 school districts, community colleges, a local ABC affiliate, local cable company and the Sacramento Metropolitan Cable Commission and inspires students to produce educational videos to share their vision and ideas. SECC produces the program to showcase digital video programs created by Sacramento students, and the program is aired weekly on SECC's educational cable channels and in the Video Gallery.
Student DV features student work entered in the annual SEVA (Student Educational Video Awards) contest. Open to Sacramento county K-20 students, the SEVAs provide a variety of categories to express an educational message PSA, school news/events, documentary and instructional.
Since many schools have a multimedia program, Student DV provides teachers with useful instructional materials to help students learn more about video production and also see what their peers are creating.
Producing a video program involves much more than just taping an event. The knowledge and expertise needed for a successful production requires numerous cross curriculum skills including teamwork, ability to research topics, knowledge of subject areas, ability to communicate ideas, reading, creative writing and organization.

The Digital Journalist Program helps increase student media production, teaches the techniques of broadcast journalism, provides technical support for teachers and students, facilitates a larger outlet for student videos and increases participation in the Student Educational Video Awards (SEVA). The program is made possible through the combined efforts of the Gannett Foundation, News10 and SECC.
News10 and SECC production staff provide training for students and teachers at each site, and students have an opportunity to use video to share their visions and stories with the entire community — on News10, SECC’s cable channels and online.
One grant requirement is that the school submits at least two videos to SECC’s annual SEVA contest. Open to all Sacramento county students (K-20), the contest celebrates the talents and visions of student video producers and their work in the areas of documentary, school news/events, PSA and instructional.
For many years, SECC has instructed students about the value of video production. Special funding in 2002 from the Sacramento Metropolitan Cable Commission allowed SECC to launch the starter kit program and create three video kits loaned to interested schools. SECC provides quality educational resources to learners of all ages in the Sacramento community through video and other communication technologies via cable systems and networks and is a collaborative effort of the K-20 education community.
The Gannett Foundation grants enabled Sacramento’s News10 to join the program and teach students the tenets and values of journalism they practice daily.
