Samsung invited teachers from across the United States to participate in the second annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow video competition as part of the company's Hope for Children philanthropic initiative. The winning teachers and students will receive products, software, and programming from Samsung, Microsoft, the Adobe Foundation, and DIRECTV for their schools, a total retail prize value of over $1 million.

The program is intended to help promote education in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

“Over 1,100 schools from across the country responded to last year’s contest challenge and sought ways to improve their environment using math and science. Samsung is thrilled to continue building upon that success,” said David Steel, EVP of Corporate Strategy, Samsung North America. “It is our goal to raise awareness and interest in STEM while providing teachers and students with the resources they need for success.”

Nine-time Grammy winner and philanthropist John Legend also indicated his continued involvement in the competition. “I had the pleasure of witnessing first-hand how Solve for Tomorrow stimulated nationwide student interest in STEM, and I look forward to working with them again this year,” said Legend. “Samsung makes a difference in the education and lives of children, which is a goal of mine and my organization, The Show Me Campaign.”

Through October 31, 2011, teachers can submit a short application for a chance to participate in this year’s video contest. Twenty-five selected classrooms will become finalists and receive a Samsung camcorder and laptop, along with Adobe Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements software to create videos that answer the challenge.
