“Solve for Tomorrow showed me that, even though I am still a student, I can impact the world around me to make it a better place.” -Aubree, Ashland Middle School Student, 2018 National Winner

We are thrilled to share with you that the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow education contest is accepting applications from 6th-12th grade public school educators, now through October 23rd.

The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition invites teachers to lead a group of students in creating a STEM-centered (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) solution that addresses a need in their communities. Positive change begins with just one idea, but our students always create a ripple effect when it comes to innovating for social good. For example, last year Deep Creek Middle School’s winning Sight for Tomorrow project focused on making clear vision more accessible. Their prototype started with a free eye exam app and a website to connect students to affordable glasses, but they have already launched this program within their school and are now working on expanding and offering services to other students in their district.

Entering your class and general idea into this contest only takes a few minutes, so we encourage you to do it now. Contest applicants will have a chance to win a share of $3 million in Samsung technology and classroom supplies for their school throughout the competition (more than $100K for each winning school).*
