Help S.C. schools win part of $2 million prize

Contributed by Allison PR

Last year, Richland 2 Institute of Innovation school was named state winner in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest for their work improving the local community.

Today, other local schools can enter the 2017-2018 contest for a chance to win part of the $2 million prize.

Teachers who want to help their students creatively address problems in their local communities through science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) skills must submit their project idea by Thursday, November 9 to be considered.

Kirstin Bullington entered the program last year, and with her students, won $25,000 in technology while encouraging students to use STEAM skills to improve the local area.

New to this year’s contest, Samsung has created a referral giveaway program where any public school employee who refers his educator colleagues to complete a contest submission will be entered to win Samsung technology prize.
