Hiawatha High School's Principles of Engineering Class and their teacher Mr. Thies entered the Samsung SOLVE for tomorrow contest.  The contest challenges students in grades 6-12 to show how STEM can be applied to help improve their local communities.  Thousands of impressive applications for the 2018-2019 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest were received; Mr. Thies and his students have been selected as one of five finalists to represent Kansas!

As a State Finalist, they qualify to move onto the Second Phase of the contest where they will compete for the State Winner title. The next step in the Second Phase of the contest is to complete an Activity Plan that will serve as the outline for their project. Their Activity Plan will be judged based on the following criteria: Problem Applicability, Community Involvement/Impact, Application of STEM studies, Feasibility and Originality.

Congratulations to these outstanding RED HAWKS!  We wish you the best of luck on the next phase of this remarkable contest!
