Fifty-one Public Schools Across the Country Named as State Winners in Samsung's $2 Million Solve for Tomorrow Contest

Samsung today announced the 51 state winners in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest, the company's commitment to raise interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) learning across America. Each winner will receive Samsung products and Adobe software to compete in the next phase of the competition as well as a total of at least $20,000* in technology.

"We congratulate these winners," said David Steel, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics North America. "The creativity and quality of these projects has raised the level of this competition to new heights. We are very encouraged by what we've seen from these participants. Not only are we excited to see these projects come to life but also how these young people will use STEM after this contest to improve their own futures as well as the wider world."

The 51 state winners, listed at the end of this announcement, were chosen from more than 2,300 applicants. Their ideas ran the gamut from reducing pollution with bicycles made from bamboo to finding the safest routes to school in an urban community to compelling government action to remove carcinogens in the community.
