South Florida’s George Washington Carver Middle School will be receiving a $35,000 grant in technology and is a national finalist to win a $140,000 technology prize package from Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow Contest.

Two students and a teacher became finalists by developing a way to use scientific evidence to spur  public action around the city of Miami's former garbage incinerator, Old Smokey, a news release said.

Students will also receive a free trip to travel to SXSWedu to speak with Bill Rancic and a panel of judges from Harvard University.

In an effort to win a $140,000 technology prize package, students need assistance from the public by getting their votes for their school. Voting for the People's Choice Award winner ends March 13.

Winners will also travel to Washington D.C. to meet with government officials.
