SECC coordinates the SEVAs (Student Educational Video Awards), a free educational video contest for Sacramento County students. We receive submissions from K-20 students across the county in five different categories including: Creative Expression, Documentary, Instructional, Public Service Announcement and School News. A panel of judges watch every video and use our rubrics to select the top videos in each category.
The SEVA program provides students with the opportunity to express themselves, be creative, collaborate, problem solve, improve organization, communicate, write and develop self-confidence. Our number of submissions grows every year with over 1400 students participating annually.
The SEVA Teachers Community encourages all media / SEVA teachers to get together and share what is going on in their classrooms. It’s the perfect opportunity to collaborate, share resources and learn new production techniques and ideas from colleagues.

On August 26, 1985, eight South Natomas residents tuned in, for the first time, to cable television, and the Sacramento Educational Cable Consortium (SECC) aired, for the first time, programming on one channel. Cable television was activated that day and SECC was the only community channel ready to provide programming. Then, SECC’s 50 hours a week of pre-recorded programs were an enormous accomplishment, especially with a two-person staff. Today, SECC’s viewers watch programming 24/7 on two channels: Cable 15 & 16. SECC is part of Sacramento’s community cable channels along with Access Sacramento, KVIE’s Cable 7, Sacramento Faith, and Metro Cable.
