Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow contest is a nationwide competition which aims to raise interest in STEM subjects by awarding schools with a share of over $2 million in technology.
From now until October 31st, Samsung will be accepting applications from teachers in all disciplines representing grades 6-12, and there’s no limit to the number of teachers that can enter from each school. Prizes will be awarded at each stage of the competition, from the 255 State Finalists to the final Five National Winners. Entrants must answer a few, simple questions about their school and STEM education at www.samsung.com/solve. One school per state will win a technology kit to produce a video addressing the challenge, “Show how STEM can be applied to help improve your local community.” In addition to the video kit, each state will have one winner that will receive at least a $20,000 technology package for their school. National Winners will receive $140,000 in technology and prizes, and a trip to Washington, D.C. for a celebratory event.
