Samsung is hosting its 12th annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest, which challenges U.S. students in grades 6-12 to use STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to address local issues of national importance in a sustainable way. This year’s teams were encouraged to use responsibly sourced materials in their prototypes and align their project ideas with the United Nation’s sustainable development goals. 

We are so proud to share that the team from Great Bridge High School (GBH) is one of the 10 recently announced national finalists and will receive $50,000 in Samsung technology and classroom materials from DonorsChoose.org! Our GBH team, mentored by Ms. Paula Labbe, developed a strategic solution to streamline school bus routes and make them more efficient. Their solution features AcceleRoute – an app they designed and built to implement their solution and prove that it works! 

Now the GBH team needs your help! Community members from across the nation are invited to vote for their favorite projects from the top ten National Finalists online now through Sunday, April 24, 2022. Cast your vote every day to support the team from Great Bridge High School as they compete to become a Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Community Choice Winner.

The students will travel to New York City on April 25th and 26th to pitch their project to a panel of judges. The Great Bridge team will be represented by Donovan Carter, Camille Kersha-Aerga, and Darren Labbe and will be present when the judges announce one Community Choice Winner, one Employee Choice Winner, and three National Winners. Good luck, Great Bridge!
