VANCOUVER, Wash. – Students at Hudson's Bay High School are in the running for a national award that could earn the school $120,000 dollars from the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest.

Hudson's Bay is one of the top 15 schools from across the country competing to earn a technology grant for their work in science, technology, engineering and math.

Led by horticulture teacher Steve Lorenz and students in the school's Architecture, Construction and Environmental Services program, the project uses mushroom mycelia to reclaim cardboard waste and produce mushrooms that can be used for growing kits, as food additives or for large-scale recycling.

The national finalist schools created a video to promote their project.

Hudson's Bay's video can be seen here. You can also vote for Hudson's Bay's entry at the site, to help them win one of several possible awards.
