I don't know if you are familiar with a program called "Samsung's Solve for Tomorrow" competition, the program encourages teachers and students to solve real-world issues in their community using classroom skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEAM).

Each year, a different school is chosen, not at random, but a long list of criteria must be met. The winner of that competition is none other than Sulphur High School!

The whole project got its start back when Sulphur chemistry teacher Jeanne LeJeune challenged her students to take on the traffic congestion facing this area lately. The students did a study of the problem and wrote a report including ways to reduce traffic, but also to reduce emissions. I'd call that quite a contribution to the area on the part of the students.

For their great work, the Sulphur High students have earned the school a minimum of $25,000 worth of Samsung products. The students will also get a chance to take their plan to the national level and take part in that competition.Now, each state winner will create a video showcasing their proposed solution to real-world problems. Finalists have the opportunity to pitch their projects to judges and earn up to $150,000 worth of technology for their school.

Best of luck to Sulphur High and congrats on your excellent work!
