Calling all Big Hero 6 kid fans!! How would you like to win a trip to LA to walk the Red Carpet at the Hollywood Premiere of Disney’s BIG HERO 6 and go behind the scenes of Walt Disney Animation Studios? I know super cool, right?! Sorry adults but this contest is only open to kids 8-17 years of age, but they need a chaperone, right?!
XPRIZE has joined forces with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Disney Corporate Citizenship to launch this video contest. In order to enter you must make a video submission on innovative ideas to tackle the world’s biggest challenges using science, technology, engineering, art and/or mathematics. The video can be of a short story, sculpture, drawing, model, robot, or whatever your creativity takes you. Videos will be scored on how well they explain the problem, show their solution, and explain what they learned and the impact their idea would have on themselves and the world. The more creative you are the better chance you have at winning.
The six winners, the real-life “Big Hero 6,” will travel to Los Angeles to walk the red carpet at the film’s Hollywood premiere in early November, go behind the scenes and meet the creative minds at both Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering, join a special “Visioneering™” experience at XPRIZE headquarters, plus other prizes.
In addition to the trip to Los Angeles, the six winners will receive reimbursement for one (1) Contestant registration for FIRST® LEGO® League for the competition season 2014-2015 in the US or Canada, and a Special littleBits® NASA Space Kit and cloudBit™ Starter Kit.
The contest is open for submissions from September 17, 2014, to October 12, 2014.
Participating kids will compete in two divisions: Junior Division (8-12 years of age), and Senior Division (13–17 years of age). All entrants must have prior consent from their parent or legal guardian in order to participate in the challenge. Registration details are available at xprizechallenge.org/bighero6.
Video Submissions will be judged on innovation, creativity and presentation. Twenty (20) finalists will be selected based on the highest scores resulting from preliminary scoring by XPRIZE judges. In mid October, a panel of luminary S.T.E.A.M. expert judges will evaluate the twenty finalists’ submissions and six (6) winners will be selected through a combination of the expert judges’ scores and public voting results.
