Help Members of Team 291 win $120,000

Hello CD,
Recently a few members of FIRST Team 291 entered in the Samsung Solve for tomorrow contest. One of our mentors is a teacher at Collegiate Academy high school and has several robotics students in his principles of engineering class. They entered into the contest with a vertical farming concept and were chosen as one of 15 national finalists! The contest has now opened to public voting and they need your help. If they are chosen as one of the winners they will win over $100,000 in technology for their school district. This will help promote STEM education in the area. Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 25, 2015. Once you vote you will receive a confirmation email. Click the link to finalize the vote. You can vote once per day.
