Samsung Canada recently announced the launch of the 2017 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge where Canadian schools will have a chance to compete for several technology grants.
This is a national education initiative where schools can apply STEM to help solve community issues. Samsung will award 150 finalist schools with technology grants, while four of these schools will be awarded grand prize technology grants valued at $20,000 each.
“In a year where we celebrate Canada’s 150th, we are committed to helping the bright minds of the next 150 reach their full potential through STEM education, benefiting the Canadian communities they call home,” said Mark Childs, chief brand officer for Samsung Canada, in a statement.
Teachers in classes between grades six and 12 can enter the contest at solvefortomorrow.ca from now until April 13th. A minimum of 37 entries from the four specified regions will be deemed Regional finalists.
The regions are divided as such; Western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta and Yukon), Central Canada (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories and Nunavut), Eastern Canada (Ontario and Quebec) and Atlantic Canada (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador).
The 2016 Solve for Tomorrow Challenge garnered participation from 650 Canadian schools.
