HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Students from Lawrence County need your help to win approximately $120,000 in technology.

Friday, April 1st is the last day of voting in Samsung’s “Solve for Tomorrow” contest, which pits students nationwide against one another, challenging them to solve real-world issues in their own communities through science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills.

Lawrence County High School was selected as a National Finalist for its project exploring solutions to the declining population of honeybees. Click here to view the project. As a National Finalist, the school will receive at least $40,000 in technology.

But there’s a chance it could win even more, including a trip to Washington, D.C. for an awards ceremony in April. There will be five National Winners selected.

So how can you vote? It’s easy.

Just go to Instagram and/or Twitter and make a post using the school’s designated hashtags: #SamsungSolveLCHS and #SamsungSolve. Votes are limited to one per person today. Again, voting ends at 10:59 p.m. CT on Friday, April 1.

A few more notes? Retweets or shares of social posts do NOT count as votes.

Let’s help Lawrence County win it all!
