Samsung Solve for Tomorrow

Samsung Solve for Tomorrow

Since 2004, Samsung’s education programs have contributed more than $13 million in technology to more than 500 public schools in the U.S. In 2010, Samsung unveiled a new contest initiative called Solve for Tomorrow to foster more enthusiasm in STEM education. Together with industry and NGO partners, the Solve for Tomorrow contest uses technology as a motivator to raise awareness and interest in STEM learning among teachers and students.

The national education contest reaches students in grades 6-12 through school-based model that encourages students to combine their creativity and STEM knowledge to become the innovators of tomorrow by asking them to answer this challenge: Show how STEM can be applied to help improve your local community.

The $2 million contest is open to all public school teachers and students in the U.S. Five schools per state are selected as State Finalists, winning two tablets each, and out of those schools, one winner from each state receives a Samsung camcorder, laptop and Adobe editing software to compete in the video phase of the contest. Fifteen finalists chosen from that pool, win additional prizes in technology and the opportunity to be chosen as one of five grand prize winners - three by a panel of judges, one by Samsung employees, one by public online voting.

The five grand prize winners are honored at a special awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., in April. For more information about the Solve for Tomorrow, please visit
