Since you have both, why don't you compare them? I would've answered if I knew the answer. But that's what I would do to find out for myself.

Jake, they are not compatible. The 5C uses a AA22LB-P 28 contact connector (14 on each side) and the 5S uses a BM15AP(0.8)-22DS-0.35V 22 connector (11 on each side). You will notice that the 5c is a larger connector,even by looking at the images provided to you.

The iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S appear to have the same LCD connector (flex cable).

You may want to attempt it if you have the part readily available.
