    NATIONAL WINNER: ACADEMY AT PALUMBO • Pennsylvania

    ORIGINAL STORY:

    Samsung not only gives us some great phones and other electronic devices, they serve in helping in humanitarian efforts as well. This academic year, they been providing awards of tablets, laptops, and video cameras and other technology to schools around the nation in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition.

    I became aware of this competition after seeing the story on our local news station. One of our local Idaho middle schools has qualified in the final 15 schools across the nation for competing for the grand prize with their Earthquake Protection project. To see all entries and schools chosen for this honor see this link.

    Samsung is dedicated to helping people discover a world of possibilities. We do this by creating products and technology that inspire passion and give consumers experiences they never dreamed were possible. With these practices in mind, Samsung started the Solve for Tomorrow education contest, giving schools across the U.S. the opportunity to raise interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) subjects among students by awarding their schools with a share of more than $2 million* in technology products.
    A couple of students from each school will present its project before a panel of judges in Austin, Texas, where only 15 remaining classes will compete. Five of them will earn $140,000 in technology from Samsung, while the remaining 10 classes automatically earn $35,000 for making it.

    One class will will win the $140,000 and a trip to Washington, D.C., for winning the Community Choice Award. The award is won by receiving the most online votes.
    Check out the link and place your vote for the school of your choosing to help these talented students! The winner will be announced March 14, 2014 so get your votes in now. VOTE here.

    Last day to vote. Winner will be announced tomorrow.
    Nice to know that all 15 schools that were chosen to submit videos will receive a generous $35,000 or more in technology prizes, in addition to the camcorders they were given to shoot the videos with. That's pretty awesome.
    After the winner of the current contest is chosen tomorrow, (based on consumer/public votes) a panel of industry leaders will choose 4 additional winners, who will each get a $140,000 technology grant as well! Fingers crossed that Sandcreek Middle School is one of them
