I am waiting in excruciating anticipation for the new Disney movie, Tomorrowland, to come out! It will hit theaters on May 22nd. Woo stinkin’ hooooooo!!!! I just found out about this “Create TOMORROWLAND” Xprize Challenge and I wanted to share the details with you.
Staring next month, XPRIZE is launching a video contest for 8-17 year-olds to imagine world-changing technology of the future inspired by the upcoming Disney movie TOMORROWLAND!! Six winners will have a once in a lifetime mentorship experience with a leader in their area of interest. In addition, each winner will receive a $3,000 check, a 3D printer from 3D Systems, and registration for FIRST® LEGO® League for the competition season 2015-2016 in the U.S.!

Beginning April 22, 2015, Disney’s Create Tomorrowland – XPRIZE Challenge invites kids to imagine themselves in the future and report back to the present through video, imagery or stories about one new and amazing invention or innovation they encounter, how it works, and the impact it has on the future.
In June, six winners will have a once–in-a-lifetime mentorship experience with a leader in their area of interest. In addition, each winner will receive a $3,000 check, a 3D Printer from 3D Systems, and registration for FIRST® LEGO® League for the competition season 2015-2016 in the U.S.
“‘Tomorrowland’ has always been a place of possibility in our parks and for the creative team behind our new film,” said Sean Bailey, President, Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production. “The future will be steered by the imaginations of our young people, and Disney is thrilled to work with XPRIZE to encourage and inspire the next generation of thinkers and dreamers to build the future they imagine is possible.”
