Samsung is thrilled to announce that it is accepting applications for the 2017-2018 Solve for Tomorrow contest through November 9, at www.samsung.com/solve.
Teachers are encouraged to apply here.
Samsung welcomes U.S. 6-12th grade public school teachers who teach in public schools including Charter Schools that are 50% or more publicly funded to submit ideas on how their students can use STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) to address a real-world problem in their community.
The $2 million* contest awards schools in every U.S. state and the District of Columbia, recognizing hundreds of schools throughout the phased program for their achievements. Teachers can enter the contest online by answering three simple questions detailing how their student will use STEAM to combat a local challenge. From environmental to health, safety to nutrition, equality to poverty, and more – any matter that’s important to students and their communities can be submitted to the contest.
New this year, Samsung has created a referral giveaway program to get all public school employees involved – for every qualified, completed referral application with your name and contact information, teachers will be entered for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Note8 phone or 65” TV.**
$2 million prize is based on an estimated retail value.
