Samsung Vietnam Complex, Samsung Vina Electronics and Junior Achievement Vietnam (JA Vietnam) held the final round of the 4th Solve for Tomorrow 2022 to find the best projects that contribute to solving social and local problems.

The final round took place with the competition of the 10 best teams from many provinces and cities across the country with projects in many different fields from the environment, education to healthcare.

In this final round, the teams present their projects, operate the model, and then answer questions from the judges. The final results are evaluated not only based on the product and project implementation factors, but also on soft skills such as presentation, critical thinking, teamwork and time management.

The first prize - with the reward of a visit to South Korea and a product from Samsung worth VND25 million - for each contestant and instructor went to the Blue Dreams team of Nguyen Khuyen Middle School – High School, Da Nang City with the project Smart Library Management System (Group A) and Future team of Truong Xuan High School in Dong Thap Province, with the IoT hospital bed project for patients with infectious diseases and the elderly at home (Group B).

In addition, the organising committee also awarded two Second prizes, six Third prizes, 10 Consolation prizes, two Voting prizes and 30 Online Training Round awards. The total value of the prize is up to VND2 billion.

“Today, in the final round, after seeing the competing products of the teams, not only do I deeply feel the enthusiasm and creativity of the students, but I also see their determination to create a better future. I hope that all of us will give attention and support to young people so their creativity can develop into creative problem-solving. Samsung will also always be a companion of the young generation on this journey,” said Choi Joo Ho, President of Samsung Vietnam.

Solve for Tomorrow 2022 was launched in May 2022 for students from secondary and high school, aged 12 to 18, to encourage them to apply their STEM education knowledge related to the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to surmount existing social problems.

After 6 months of implementation, the competition has attracted registrations from more than 75,000 students and teachers, and received 1,160 entries from many secondary and high schools across the country.

Throughout the competition, the students had the opportunity to participate in online training and coaching courses guided by a team of senior professional advisors who are experts and employees of Samsung, in order to improve their ability of creative thinking, idea drafting and scientific project presentation.

With a long-term commitment to development in Viet Nam, together with Solve for Tomorrow, Samsung has been trying to focus on training Viet Nam's future young generation through many other programmes such as the Samsung Innovation Campus (SIC) aiming to orient the young generation's education, providing IT knowledge from basic to advanced to help them have a solid technology foundation, thereby becoming more confident and being the key generation of the Industry 4.0; Project "S Hub sharing space" in HCM City, Ha Noi and Da Nang; “S Hub Kids – A Technology environment” for students who love STEM subjects; "Samsung Talent program" in co-operation with universities; and the Samsung Hope School Project bringing extracurricular learning opportunities to disadvantaged children. — VNS
