Schoharie wins $100K from Samsung contest


SCHOHARIE, N.Y. - Samsung named Schoharie High School as a winner in their Solve for Tomorrow contest, receiving a total of $100,000 in technology.

In addition to the $100,000 the high school wins a trip to DC, and a chance to meet nine-time Grammy winner and philanthropist John Legend at a celebration event in April.

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. The students beat out 12 other finalists nationwide for the grand prize.

To make the video, Schoharie students chose to use the two things people think of when they think of their county, which are agriculture and the devastation caused by storms Irene and Lee.

All five schools that won, including Schoharie, will choose from a range of technology prizes such as projectors, smart boards, LED TVs, printers, laptops and software.

The other four schools that won are: Davenport School of the Arts in Davenport, FL; Desert Wind Middle School in Maricopa, AZ; Lawrence County High School in  Moulton, AL; and Jefferson Township Middle School in Oak Ridge, NJ.
