Applications Open for $1 Million STEM Video Competition

Samsung’s third annual Solve for Tomorrow competition has recently opened applications for teachers and students to submit videos on STEM subjects for prizes totaling $1 million.

Teachers and schools are encouraged to apply by filling out a form describing how participating in this national competition would raise student interest in STEM-related disciplines. Seventy-five schools will then be chosen and will each receive technology kits with equipment necessary to film videos showing how STEM can help the environment in their communities. The technology kits include a Samsung camcorder, a Samsung laptop, and an Adobe Element bundle (including video editing software and Photoshop).

The top fifteen videos will be posted on Samsung’s website for online voting, and each of those fifteen schools will be awarded technology grants of $40,000. The five schools with the highest amount of votes will receive $110,000 each, with the top school receiving a special award. The contest is for classes in grades 6-12, and public schools and charter schools that receive at least 50 percent of their funding from public sources are eligible to apply.

Applications are open now until October 31. Schools and teachers interested can apply here. Learn more about the competition through Samsung’s video on Solve for Tomorrow, embedded below.
