C-SPAN bus making stop this week in Frankfort

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky C-SPAN fans can get a close-up look at the public affairs network when its bus makes a stop in Frankfort this week.

C-SPAN says the bus is spreading the word about its "First Ladies" feature series and student documentary contest, StudentCam.

The documentary competition will award 150 prizes with a total of $100,000 in prize money.

There's also interactive technology aboard the bus providing information about the network's event coverage, online offerings, social media and production equipment.

The bus will be at the state Capitol from 8:15 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. EDT Thursday and at the Kentucky Historical Society from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday. The network will tape an interview with Gov. Steve Beshear and Health and Family Services Secretary Audrey Tayse Haynes during the stop.
