I’m so excited to announce that in honor of the upcoming release of Marvel Studios’ THOR: RAGNAROK, Disney, Marvel Studios, Dolby Laboratories, Synchrony Bank, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Broadcom MASTERS and Society for Science & the Public are hosting the nationwide MARVEL STUDIOS’ THOR: RAGNAROK SUPERPOWER OF STEM CHALLENGE in conjunction with the film!

Happy Friday my lovely readers! Who is ready for the weekend? I sure am! And do you know what I see in my future? Wine! If you like to make your weekends #WineWeekends, then you are going to want to keep reading this post… I’ve talked about Wine Trail Adventures on my blog before. They offer Now through July 23rd, thanks to Wine Trail Adventures, you can download the app for your chance to win a 1-Day Wine Tour Bus Trip for TEN (yes 10 people!) in Maryland with Wine Trail Adventures!
So I like wine. It’s a simple fact. As a hard working momma, it is nice to unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine. (#WineWednesdays for the win!) Anyone who knows me, knows this. Actually I’m pretty sure even my Instagram followers all know this, given that the profile photo is of me with a glass.
Over the weekend, Marvel Studios Hero Acts launched a sweepstakes in relation to next year’s release of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL 2.!!! If you recall, back in October, Marvel launched Hero Acts, a new charitable initiative focused on bringing help and hope to kids around the world. The new sweepstakes will give you the chance to join the talent behind the film at the movie’s Red Carpet Hollywood Premiere! Simply submit a photo through marvelstudiosheroacts.com, and you could win!
I received the following information as a blogger via Walt Disney Publications. All opinions are 100% my own.
I’m excited to let you know that XPRIZE, along with Disney Citizenship and Walt Disney Studios, is getting ready to unleash a nationwide challenge for young innovators. Together they are launching a video contest, beginning April 22, 2015, for 8-17 year-olds to imagine world-changing technology of the future inspired by the upcoming Disney movie TOMORROWLAND! In other words, kids are challenged 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, according to XPRIZE.
The prizes are seriously beyond amazing. Participants will compete in two divisions: Junior Division (8-12 years old), and Senior Division (13–17 years old). In total there will be six winners, who will have a once–in-a-lifetime mentorship experience with a leader in their area of interest. Furthermore, 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.!
