Samsung is dedicated to helping children share the wonder of life, learning, and the planet. Through the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest we will give away more than $1,000,000* worth of technology to schools around the country.

Samsung and its partners called on public school teachers to raise student interest in science, technology, engineering and math by inviting them to answer the challenge, “Show how science or math can help the environment in your community.” More than 1,500 application essays came from teachers and students across the country. The top 75 were chosen and sent video production kits containing a Samsung laptop, camcorder and software from Adobe. Fifteen finalists have been selected and are featured on this site.

The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Judging Panel will select four grand prize winners and we’re asking you to help select the fifth grand prize winner – our Community Choice Winner – by voting below. Click on the videos below to view, then vote for your favorite!

Vote Now – Public Voting Closes at 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, March 4, 2013!
