Oakley teacher wins $20K through nationwide Samsung program

By  | 

(KMVT/KSVT) — An Oakley High School teacher was selected from thousands of contest entries nationwide and awarded $20,000 from Samsung.

Lisa Hitt teaches 11th and 12th graders and their project proposal addresses vaping, according to a news release. She was announced as the Idaho state winner by the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow program.

Now Oakley High School will reinvest that money into classroom technology. However; the contest continues. They will continue working on their projects and submit a three minute video to potentially advance on to the next phase.

Hitt still has a shot at another $50,000 technology package or even a $100,000 award.
