Worcester Tech Students Compete for $140K Prize

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER CO., Md. - Students at a local high school are in the running for some big prize money.

Worcester Technical High School initially won $35,000 for making the top-15 in Samsung's Solve for Tomorrow contest.

If they can get to the top-five, they'll win $140,000. The school was first nominated for creating a new layout for Atlantic General hospital's waiting room.

"We want to show that a rural community," said  biomedical science and nursing instructor Tracy Hunter. "[We're creating a] world-class, top notched project such as this that allows kids to do something real not just in paper or textbook form."

To get to the top-five, the school needs your votes. To view the school's project, click here.
