Students from the Makah Nation in Washington are among 12 finalists for the Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow contest.

The team from Neah Bay High School and Markishtum Middle School made a documentary about the use of mushrooms to clean up Tatoosh Island, a sacred site. The students' video makes use of the Makah language.

The team already received $70,000 in technology and software for their schools. If they are among five grand prize winners, they will get an additional $100,000.
