Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King congratulated students at Noble High School in North Berwick for being named one of 10 National Finalists in Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow competition.  These students earned this recognition for developing a water filtration system that will remove elevated levels of manganese found in the local water supply.  As a National Finalist, Noble High School will receive a minimum of $50,000 in Samsung technology. 

 

“We are very proud of this group of talented students at Noble High School, who used their ingenuity and academic skills to solve a problem facing their community,” said Senators Collins and King in a joint statement.  “STEM education is extremely important in today’s rapidly changing world, and Noble High School’s impressive accomplishment demonstrates that Maine students are well prepared to succeed in the 21st century economy.  We congratulate these students and their advisors on this exciting achievement, and we wish them all the best in the next stage of the competition.”

 

Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow competition challenges middle and high school students nationwide to use their science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills to help improve their local communities. 

 

Next month, the Noble High School students will join the other nine National Finalists to present their ideas at the Solve for Tomorrow Pitch held in New York City.  Three National Winners will be selected shortly thereafter, and in honor of their achievements, they will receive $150,000 in Samsung technology.  They will also travel to D.C. to meet with their Members of Congress, tour the Capitol, and celebrate their accomplishments.  Members of the community can vote for their favorite project by visiting http://www.samsung.com/us/solvefortomorrow/ through March 25th.
