Congratulations to our 2011 Winners!

On behalf of Samsung, it is my honor to announce the winners of our 2011 Scholarship Essay competition on the topic of‘‘Is technology critical to a live presentation? Or is technology just a crutch?’’. The quality of the compositions we received was impressive. We found the essays to be persuasively crafted, filled with originality and infused with the indomitable spirit that is indicative of our youth. I would like to congratulate the ten winners and thank everyone who participated.

Richard Bellomy
