FARGO— Two young students at Montpelier High Schools are semifinalists in the Samsung solve for tomorrow contest and have a chance to win $130,000.

Seventh grader Alexander Gilbert and eighth grader Miranda Witt, along with help from their business teacher Richard Witt are using their skills in science, technology, engineering and math to help improve hunter safety with an app called "Martin Mapping."

The app will help farmers identify their land boundaries and permission to help create a safer environment for both hunters and farmers.

The students already won $15,000 just for making it for the semi finals. That money will go towards STEM technology and equipment for their classroom.
