Samsung Solve For Tomorrow Graphic
Solve for Tomorrow Contest

Pryor High School was named one of the nation’s 255 state finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest. The program encourages students to solve real-world issues in their community using classroom skills in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).


Mrs. Devers’ classrooms were chosen based on their proposal to use STEAM skills to address more internet access. To tackle this project, students will design and build solar charging station benches in town where wifi is provided.


As one of five state finalists in Oklahoma, Mrs. Devers will win a Samsung Chromebook to use in her classroom. Pryor High School will now have the opportunity to advance in the competition for additional classroom technology prizes.


Mrs. Devers is currently working on an Activity Plan outlining how her students will execute their project. If she is named the Oklahoma State Winner in December, Pryor High School will receive a $25,000 Samsung technology package.
