Dear Science Teachers,

We are excited to announce the launch of Samsung Solve for Tomorrow 2014/2015 contest. From now until October 31st, we are accepting applications from teachers in all disciplines representing grades 6-12, and there’s no limit to the number of teachers that can enter from each school. All applicants will have a chance to win a share of $2 Million in technology and prizes for their school. Prizes will be awarded at each stage of the competition, from the 255 State Finalists to the final Five National Winners. Entrants must answer a few, simple questions about their school and STEM education at One school per state will win a technology kit to produce a video addressing the challenge, “Show how STEM can be applied to help improve your local community.”

In appreciation for submitting your ideas to Solve for Tomorrow, we will be awarding the first 5,000 teachers who apply a select self-paced teacher development course from PBS TeacherLine. At Samsung, we know how much work educators put into motivating and leading their students and we want to say thank you.

In addition to the above mentioned, we will be awarding five teachers in every state including D.C., two Galaxy tabs. There will also be one winner from each state that will receive $20,000 technology package for their school.

Fifteen National Finalists will receive a trip to attend our first ever pitch event, where they will present their video to a panel of judges. Finally, the selected five National Winners will also be invited to attend a celebratory event in Washington D.C. in addition to winning $120,000 technology package for their school.

We’ve also added three additional chances to win with the Environmental Innovation Award, Math Makes-it-Work Award and the Civic Engagement Award.

I hope you’ll consider applying and sharing this information with your colleagues. I’d be happy to speak with you if you have any further questions on the program, my contact information can be found below
