Samsung Solve for Tomorrow 2012

Samsung is running the Solve for Tomorrow Projectwith gazillions of dollars of technological equipment as prizes, and guess what! the local little bitty country high school is a finalist! To determine which schools win the biggest jackpots, they have an online voting campaign here
What the project asks is for people to vote daily for your favorite school. 
What I'm asking is that you vote, daily until March 12, for Schoharie High School
The registration process, necessary to vote, does ask for your email, but that is just to make sure you're a real person . . . much like the beloved word verification . . . but easier.
Schoharie High School's video entry explores the effects of last summer's floods on the local agricultural industry . . . which is pretty much the only industry around here. I wrote a couple of posts about that horror: Moi apres le deluge and Drying out the Village 

To be honest, I haven't looked at anybody else's videos . . . they must be good or they would not have reached the finalist stage . . . but I just couldn't vote for anybody but the hometown. I would like to see the local school win a grand prize, but no matter what, I'm pretty proud that they've done as well as they have. 
So . . . thank you if you do decide to vote for Schoharie. And thank you if you decide to vote for somebody else. All the videos represent excellent work.
...and thank you for stopping by and reading today.

We drove through that area about a month after the floods and saw some of the devastation. Of course, we also had serious floods in Vermont last summer so we understand the effects and how long lasting they can be. I'll vote.
