Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Names Schools from Delaware, Florida, and Texas
National Winners in 13th Annual STEM Competition, Each Winning $100K in Prizes
 
RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ – May 16, 2023 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc., today named the three National Winners of Samsung Solve for Tomorrow, the nationwide competition for public middle and high school students that awards $2 million annually in prizes to teams demonstrating how they use STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills to create positive change and address pressing issues in their local communities. The winning schools from Delaware, Florida, and Texas – selected from 10 National Finalists – each receive $100,00 in Samsung technology and school supplies, while the remaining seven Finalists receive $50,000 per school.
 
The three National Winners – Brandywine High School (Wilmington, DE); Strawberry Crest High School (Dover, FL); and Porter High School (Porter, TX) – were announced by Samsung Electronics America President and CEO KS Choi at today’s celebration in Washington D.C. U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff of Georgia and U.S. Senator Todd Young of Indiana also attended the event as they were honored with STEM Champion Awards from Samsung in recognition of their efforts to advance STEM pursuits in their states.
 
“Samsung Solve for Tomorrow gives us a front-row view of the tremendous potential of this upcoming generation of STEM thinkers and do-ers,” said Ann Woo, Senior Director, Corporate Citizenship, Samsung Electronics America. “Their ingenuity in developing creative solutions to community problems and their commitment in bringing projects from idea to reality are truly inspiring. We invite everyone to join us in celebrating these young STEM champions, and all the teams that have participated in Solve for Tomorrow. They represent the vibrant future of the STEM community that is so vital to tech companies like ours.”
 
All 10 Finalists had pitched their STEM solutions yesterday at the Samsung Solutions Center in Washington to a panel of judges that included another Solve for Tomorrow alumni teacher, Harry Preston of Baltimore’s Green Street Academy. The Finalists and guests were welcomed by speakers including Alix Guerrier, CEO of DonorsChoose, nonprofit crowdfunding platform for educators and a Solve for Tomorrow partner.

@TownHubAdmin : Way to go PHS! Didn't they win, or become a finalist a couple of years ago too? It seem like they came up with something for school security.

@0007 : The thus far unknown reason why some hives of bees prosper while other hives seem to collapse, cease to exist.
 
Bees are very important to agriculture and horticulture as they pollinate almost all crops and flowering plants.
