Richmond Hill Middle School is a Georgia state finalist in the 10th annual Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest, a $3 million nationwide competition that encourages 6th-12th grade students to creatively use STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills to solve a community challenge. 

Richmond Hill Middle School was chosen from a pool of more than 2,000 entries nationwide, -- only 300 schools have been selected as a state finalist.

It was chosen based on the creative proposal submitted by teacher Jamesa Broome, using STEM learning in her classroom, to address unreliable GPS devices for the visually impaired.

As a Georgia state finalist, Broome will receive a Samsung tablet for her classroom and has the opportunity to advance through future phases of the contest to win additional prizes.
