XPRIZE Foundation, Inc. (“Sponsor”) has created the DISNEY’S CREATE TOMORROWLAND - XPRIZE CHALLENGE (“Challenge”) to encourage kids, ages 8-17 (“Contestants”), to develop their S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) skills by imagining themselves in the future reporting back to the present and telling the world about one new and amazing invention or innovation they encounter, how it works, the impact it has on the future, and what the world of today can start doing now to fast-track its creation. Sponsor is asking Contestants to share their vision of the future by submitting a video (“Video Submission”), image (“Image Submission”), and/or story (“Story Submission”) (Video Submission, Image Submission, and Story Submission, individually and collectively referred to as “Challenge Submission(s)”).
The six (6) Contestants with the most creative and inspiring Challenge Submissions (“Winners”) will win the prizes listed in section 7 below.
All this excitement and anticipation is inspired by Disney’s new science fiction mystery-adventure film “Tomorrowland,” in which a jaded, former boy-genius joins a bright, optimistic teen to embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world — and them — forever. The Challenge inspires kids to explore their capabilities and imagination and strengthen their S.T.E.A.M. skills, preparing them to tackle today’s challenges and grapple tomorrow’s opportunities.
Contestants are required to register through their parent or legal guardian to participate in the Challenge. No purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win the Challenge or any Prize. No purchase of any good or service will increase Contestant’s chance of winning the Challenge. The Challenge is void where prohibited. The Challenge is considered a game of skill and shall be governed by the following rules, regulations, terms and conditions (“Rules”):

For judging of both the Junior Division and Senior Division, Challenge Submissions will be scored based on the following weighted criteria: (i) 50% – originality and creative expression of idea; (ii) 30% – use of S.T.E.A.M. skills; and (iii) 20% – what people can do now to make the idea a reality (“Judging Criteria”). Contestants will only compete with others in their age division.
Judging ends May 18. Judges will assign a score to each Challenge Submission pursuant to the Judging Criteria. The Challenge Submission with the highest scores in each Challenge Submission type and each age division will win. If there is a tie between two (2) or more Contestants, then the Contestant with the highest score for “originality and creative expression of idea” will prevail, with any remaining ties resolved at the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor. Contestants are not eligible to win in more than one Challenge Submission type. All calculations, formulae, algorithms, and other methods of score tabulation and evaluation shall be at the sole and exclusive discretion of the Judges and Sponsor and shall not be subject to challenge or appeal.
The parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of the Contestants whose Challenge Submission has highest score will be contacted using the contact information provided at registration to verify identity and eligibility as well as confirm Contestant’s participation in the Disney Creativity Summer Mentorship Program, conducted by XPRIZE (“Program”) (see below for more information). The parent(s) or legal guardian(s) will also be required to sign an Affidavit acknowledging and accepting the requirements set forth therein. Only after this process is completed will the Contestant be deemed a Winner. If a Contestant is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Rules, or if Prize notification or any Prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential Winner will be disqualified and all privileges otherwise due as a Prize Winner shall be terminated. Winners will be announced via press release, the Challenge Website, and Challenge Entities’ social media between May 19, 2015 and May 22, 2015.
