Clark County students can apply to compete in Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest

By , Columbian staff writer

Samsung has opened applications for its 13th annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest. The contest challenges teams of students from grades six through 12 to create sustainable solutions to problems in their community using science, technology, engineering and math.

Last year, Discovery High School and Odyssey Middle School’s joint entry — Team Mean Machine’s invention, the Power Pivot — was a finalist in the competition and was awarded $50,000 in classroom resources. The Power Pivot was designed to aid those with mobility challenges to get in and out of their wheelchair efficiently and safely.

Ten finalists and three winners are chosen every year, with the ultimate prize being $100,000 in classroom resources. Interested applicants should speak with school advisers or learn more online at

Applications are open until Nov. 2.
