Samsung is dedicated to helping people discover a world of possibilities.
This fall, Samsung is giving public schools nationwide the opportunity to discover the power of technology.

Samsung and its partners are asking teachers to participate in its annual contest to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education, a key academic challenge in our country. With Samsung and schools joining together, we can foster student interest in these subjects and illustrate the power of applying that knowledge to practical, real-world issues.

Solve for Tomorrow is a video contest for public middle and high schools that awards over $2 million in technology, plus other additional prizes, to winning schools throughout the United States. From now until October 31st, Samsung is 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 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.” National Winners will receive $140,000 in technology and prizes, and a trip to Washington, D.C. for a celebratory event.

Please check for the full contest rules and additional information.
