Dear Mr. Lopez,
I wanted to let you know about a school competition my company is sponsoring called Samsung Solve for Tomorrow. It’s a video contest for public middle and high schools that awards over $2 million in technology, plus other additional prizes, to winning schools throughout the United States. I’m the ambassador for the state of California, where I’m trying to let teachers know about the program.
From now until October 31st, we are accepting applications from teachers in all disciplines representing grades 6-12, and there’s no limit to the number of teachers that can enter from each school. Prizes will be awarded at each stage of the competition, from the 255 State Finalists to the final Five National Winners. Entrants must answer a few, simple questions about their school and STEM education at www.samsung.com/solve. One school per state will win a technology kit to produce a video addressing the challenge, “Show how STEM can be applied to help improve your local community.” National Winners will receive $140,000 in technology and prizes, and a trip to Washington, D.C. for a celebratory event.
The full contest rules and additional information are posted at: www.samsung.com/solve . You’ll also be able to see examples of videos from previous winning schools. As a former student of yours, i truly encourage you to consider registering for the contest
