Samsung is launching a new Solve for Tomorrow Contest for students in the USA. The contest challenges 6-12 grade students to transform local communities through innovative, sustainable solutions using STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).

This is the 13th annual competition of its kind, and this year, Samsung's program offers $2 million in supplies and technologies (estimated retail value) to classrooms in every state. From now until November 2, 2022, public school teachers across the United States can apply to join the program, which will move ahead to several phases once the November deadline is reached.

300 State Finalists will be picked to receive a $2,500 prize package. 50 State Winners will receive a Samsung Video Kit for video development and $12,000 in classroom supplies and technologies. Only one of the 50 State Winner schools will be awarded an additional $50,000 prize package for winning the Sustainability Innovation Award.

The next phase will see 10 National Finalist Schools participating in a competition in front of a panel of judges. Seven National Finalists will be awarded $50,000 worth of technologies and supplies, and the remaining three Finalists will be granted the National Grand Prize, which consists of $100,000 in classroom technologies and supplies.

One Community Choice Winner from the top ten schools will be picked through online public voting. The Community Choice Winner will be awarded $10,000 in Samsung technologies. And finally, Samsung will pick one Employee Choice Winner to receive $10,000 worth of goods.

Harry Preston from Green Street Academy, said, “This competition has inspired in [students] a sense of entrepreneurship as well as a desire to change what the STEM field looks like from a representation standpoint. It [Solve for Tomorrow] has been incredible to guide them through as they witness firsthand their power to make change in the world.”

So far, since the first Solve for Tomorrow Contest launched in 2010, Samsung has awarded $20 million in classroom materials and technologies to more than 3,500 public schools in the USA.
