For more than 60 years, Samsung has raised the quality of life for people everywhere. As the world’s largest electronics company, we apply the same innovation, technology and resources that have driven our commercial success to advancing the education and health of children around the world through our global citizenship program, Samsung Hope for Children. It's one of the ways that Samsung uses innovation to support the development of people.
Through Samsung Hope for Children, our more than 79 subsidiaries and 236,000 employees worldwide partner with leading nonprofit organizations to affect positive change.
By supplying Samsung products, lending our expertise and providing financial support, we're able to give thousands of children in communities around the world access to education, mentorship, leadership skills and life-saving medical treatment.
Samsung Solve for Tomorrow is a nationwide contest that encourages students and teachers to share the wonder of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) education. The contest is designed to raise enthusiasm in these subjects by making them fun and interesting. The goal is to boost STEM proficiency among U.S. children, ultimately strengthening the nation's future competitiveness. We are partnering in this effort with several leading education non-profits, including the National Environmental Education Foundation and the National PTA, as well as with leading technology companies such as Adobe and DIRECTV.
Using Samsung technology in exciting new ways, students create videos that address the challenge, "Show how STEM can be applied to help improve your local community." The top five winning schools win $140,000 in Samsung technology and other software, while the entire contest awards more than $2 million in technology. Educators recognize our deep commitment to improving STEM education in the United States, with the contest receiving more than 1,600 submissions last year.
