Maine public school students in grades six through 12 are invited to participate in Samsung Solve for Tomorrow, a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) video contest that awards over $2 million in technology and additional prizes to winning schools nationwide. At least five of the state finalist schools will be from Maine, and each state will have one winning school.
Prizes will be awarded at each stage of the competition, from the 255 state finalists to the final five national winners. State winners will earn a technology kit for their school to produce a video that shows how STEM can be applied to help improve students’ local community. National winners will receive $140,000 in technology and prizes and a trip to Washington, D.C.
Teachers in all disciplines may submit applications through Oct. 31, and there is no limit to the number of teachers who can enter from each school.
