Our family is painfully awaiting Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy movie, in theaters August 1st, so we’re glued to the screen each time they release a new trailer or behind-the-scenes look at the film. The on-screen team makes being a Guardian look so awesome, how could you not want to join their team, right?
Then you’ll be excited to learn that Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Marvel Studios, Dolby® Laboratories and Visa Signature are joining forces for a nationwide Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy—Guardians of Good contest in conjunction with the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy—Guardians of Good invites real “Guardians of the Galaxy,” young men and women (ages 14-18) from across the United States, to share their stories of how they are bettering their communities through service, science or innovation, and gives them the opportunity to connect with a galaxy of Peer Guides—who are already doing great things—to learn from their successes. Entries will be accepted between June 11, 2014 and June 29, 2014.
Applicants for Guardians of Good will participate in online sessions with Peer Guides, who will include representatives from generationOn, Broadcom MASTERS®, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World Ultimate Mentor Leadership Council. Peer Guide sessions are scheduled to take place between June 13, 2014 and June 21, 2014. The Peer Guides will discuss their personal stories of service, science or innovation, and advice.
Following the Peer Guide sessions, all applicants will then submit a short video explaining how they are improving the galaxy and what inspiration and guidance they received from their Peer Guides. The five best video entries will be selected as winners.
The five winners will each receive: Two round-trip tickets to Hollywood, including hotel accommodations, from July 20 through July 23, 2014, to be on the red carpet at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on July 21, 2014; an invitation to the first-ever Guardians of Good Innovation & Service Summit on July 22nd at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, where professionals and peers will share their knowledge; a backstage tour of the Disneyland Resort; and a red-carpet screening of the film at a Dolby® AtmosTM Theatre in or near the winner’s hometown.
Guardians of Good Innovation & Service Summit is scheduled to include presenters from NASA/JPL, speaking on the monitoring and protection of Earth through asteroid detection and Earth-observing satellites and ensuring the safety of Mars spacecraft during a comet encounter, Disney Imagineers, generationOn, Broadcom MASTERS®, Discovery Science Center, & Disney Global Community Outreach.
