Samsung today announced its third annual finale event to honor the five winning schools of the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest, a nationwide $1M competition designed to raise enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education among U.S. public middle and high school students. 

The five winners will each receive $110,000 in technology products such as smart boards, LED TVs, and laptops from Samsung and its corporate partners, Adobe Foundation, and DIRECTV. As part of their prize package, the five winning schools also have the option to host a community e-waste recycling day through Samsung Recycling Direct, an e-waste program which has recycled more than 250 million pounds of electronic waste in the United States since the 2008.

The five grand prize winners are:
