Ridgefield Park, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 27, 2012
Samsung Techwin America’s Electronic Imaging Division (http://www.samsungpresenterusa.com), a leader in document camera technology, today announced the ten high school students who have each won $1,000 scholarships from Samsung Techwin by answering the question – How will technology enable the collaboration process in the future? “The creativity and intelligence of our youth is exemplified in the many entries we received,” said Richard Bellomy, V.P. of Sales for Samsung Techwin’s Electronic Imaging Division. “Thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to our winners.”
The papers were judged on original thinking, relevance to the real world, and writing quality. Ideas from hoping to study the effects of thorium versus uranium on powering our cities, to setting up a YouTube channel to bridge the distance for a long-distance piano curriculum, or being inspired by a lecture on how the homo erectus came up with the idea of fire, are just a few of the tidbits of inspiration found in this year’s entries.
