According to ComicBook.com on Wednesday, to celebrate the release of James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy", a contest called Guardians of Good will run between June 11 and June 29 in order to provide members of their region an opportunity to improve their community through the benefit of science, innovation, or service. If anyone can enter the contest and share with the world how they are seeking to improve their community or "galaxy", five winners will have access to two round trip tickets to Hollywood along with hotel accommodations. They will actually get to participate in the World Premiere of Marvel’s "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Following that day, winners will get the opportunity to participate at the Guardians of Good Innovation and Service Summit which takes place at the Walt Disney Studios where they will get to network with professionals all contributing to a similar cause. There will also be a back stage tour of Walt Disney World Resorts and a screening of "Guardians of the Galaxy" at a local Dolby Atmos TM Theater at the winners' old stomping grounds back home.
Applicants will have a window of opportunity to send in their entries between the aforementioned time frames as the event takes place between July 20 through July 23. Entrants will then be set up online with their corresponding Peer Guides already involved in their communities between June 13 and June 21.
Guardians of Good Innovation & Service Summit will include reputable organizations such as speakers from the NASA/JPL, an organization known for the detection of asteroids that could be problematic for close encounters to Earth. Also, generationOn, Disney Imagineers, Discovery Science Center, Broadcom MASTERS, and Disney Global Community Outreach.
This will be a fantastic opportunity for would be innovators, community "do-gooders", and prospective scientists. For those who are wondering what science has to offer and a chance to do good, feel free to fill out an entry form at the Guardians of Good website.
