Samsung named the five grand prize winners in its nationwide $1 million Solve for Tomorrow contest, a competition to raise enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education among U.S. public school students. The five grand prize winners - chosen from 12 finalists selected in February - will receive technology from Samsung, Microsoft, the Adobe Foundation, and DirecTV. The winners are:

* Lawrence County High School, Moulton, AL
* Desert Wind Middle School, Maricopa, AZ
* Davenport School of the Arts, Davenport, FL
* Jefferson Township Middle School, Oak Ridge, NJ
* Schoharie High School, Schoharie, NY

Schoharie High School won the Community Choice Award through public online voting and will receive an assistance dog for their school in addition to the $100,000 of technology. All five schools will choose from a range of technology prizes such as smart boards, LED TVs, printers, laptops, and software.

The five winners will be honored at a Washington, D.C. ceremony in April with John Legend, the Grammy Award-winning recording artist and education advocate.

"The passion this contest engendered was amazing to see," said David Steel, executive vice president of Corporate Strategy of Samsung Electronics North America. "Schoharie High School received more than 100,000 votes as our Community Choice winner. That kind of public support is fantastic. Congratulations to all the winning schools as well as the other seven finalists. We hope that the challenge of this contest, together with the technology for winning schools, will help spark students' passion to become the innovators of tomorrow through STEM education."

More than 1,500 schools from all 50 states entered the contest, which kicked off in August with an essay submission on how STEM can help the environment in their community. Twenty-five were picked to receive a video production kit containing $1,000 of technology - a Samsung laptop, camcorder, and Adobe software - to compete as semi-finalists and in the video phase of the contest.
