About Samsung Solve for Tomorrow

Solve for Tomorrow is a nationwide competition challenging New Zealand’s next generation of innovators, to change the world for good.

Entrants are asked to identify an issue their community is facing – see our 2021 winners for great examples – then unleash their creativity and demonstrate how STEAM and design thinking can be applied to create an amazing new solution.

World-renowned scientist, Associate Professor Dr Siouxsie Wiles, is returning as a judge, alongside MOTAT Education Manager, Julie Baker and Samsung’s Simon Smith.

The winners will share $20,000 in prizes, including prize money and Samsung tech for them and their school.

Who can enter?

  • All Y5–10 students and their teacher(s) can enter Solve for Tomorrow.
  • Entries are welcome from individuals or teams.
  • No experience needed. Just an idea that uses STEAM and a desire to make a difference.

How to enter

  • Entry is simple – students just need to share their idea with us, including: what is the issue, what is their solution, who is it for, why is it different, and what inspired them.
  • This year we’re giving students the opportunity to receive judges’ feedback if they complete and submit their Project Plan early! This step is optional but taking the opportunity to receive and implement feedback will strengthen their entry and improve their chance of winning!
  • Students need to send in their project plan by 8 July 2022 to be eligible for early feedback. Entrants will then have until 2 September 2022 to submit their final entry.
