Win A Samsung Q1 Ultra and Win Support For Your School

Hfe_prizesI hadn’t seen this publicized until last night and since the contest started in April I find that a bit bizarre, so here’s hoping we can get the word out more here.

Samsung and Microsoft are sponsoring a competition that can benefit the school of your choice and you. Here’s the details: To enter the Samsung Hope For Education competition write a 100 word essay on “What is the single most significant benefit that technoloogy can provide in the classroom.” The essays should focus on:


  • A single benefit or improvement to the educational process.
  • The specific types of technologies that will create this benefit.
  • The features of these technologies that create value in the educational process.

There are 62 prizes being awarded and the grand prize is $200,000 in Samsung technology and Microsoft Software to the school of your choice and $60,000 for 30 first prizes. The winning entrants for the grand and first prizes will receive a Q1 Ultra.

The competition is running through July 22, 2007.
