In addition to reviews of Frozen party supplies, Frozen in Arendelle features a blog filled with interesting articles about the Frozen DVD and its many wonderful characters.

As kids and adults alike know quite well, Frozen is one of the most beloved Disney movies of all time. Many parents have watched the touching story of sisters Anna and Elsa numerous times with their children, and everyone enjoys the amusing antics and humor of Olaf the friendly snowman.

Many toy manufacturers have been capitalizing on the popularity of the story that was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale “The Snow Queen” by releasing a variety of Frozen dolls, dresses, and much more. Unfortunately, not all of the merchandise is high quality, which leads to disappointed kids and parents.

This is where Frozen in Arendelle can help—by offering reviews on scores of Frozen-themed products, parents can rest assured that they are spending their hard-earned money on the Frozen toys and other items.

Using the Frozen in Arendelle website is easy; visitors to the site just need to click on the “Magical World of Frozen Comparison Guide” tab at the top of the home page to bring up a list of product categories, including Frozen dolls, toys, cookie cutters and stationery. For example, clicking on “Frozen party supplies” brings visitors to a new page with a list of currently available items along with their prices and descriptions. This feature allows parents and other people who wish to buy Frozen-themed items to save valuable time by comparing and contrasting the products in one convenient spot.

Anybody who would like to learn more about Frozen in Arendelle is welcome to visit the new and easy-to-navigate website; there, they can browse through the helpful reviews and read interesting articles about the movie.

Heroes Wanted! XPRIZE is Launching a Video Contest for 8- to 17-Year-Olds to Form the Real-Life “Big Hero 6”

Heros Wanted for Xprize Video Contest

Heros Wanted for Xprize Video Contest

XPRIZE has joined forces with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Disney Corporate Citizenship for today’s launch of a nationwide video contest designed to find the real-life counterparts to the animated heroes that will soon burst onto the big screen in “BIG HERO 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure from Disney opening November 7, 2014.

The DISNEY BIG HERO 6 – XPRIZE CHALLENGE invites young people between the ages of 8 and 17 to harness their creativity and come up with innovative ideas to tackle the world’s biggest challenges using science, technology, engineering, art and/or mathematics.

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.

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.

Said Walt Disney Animation Studios President Ed Catmull, “We are thrilled to work with XPRIZE to find real-life young heroes whose desire is to tackle the world’s great challenges. It’s an honor for all of us at Walt Disney Animation Studios to welcome them at our Studio and at the premiere of “Big Hero 6.”

“The young people who win this contest will be real-world heroes, ready and willing to tackle some of the greatest challenges facing our world today,” said Trish Halamandaris, senior vice president marketing & communications at XPRIZE. “The XPRIZE Foundation is excited to be conducting this competition that challenges young people to be bold, creative and smart, and to dare to think big. We believe that solutions to the problems facing humanity can come from anyone, anywhere, and one of these kids just might come up with an idea that can truly change the world.”

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.

The video submissions may involve a short story, sculpture, drawing, model, robot or whatever method best communicates the idea in the most creative way (please see Official Rules for further details, restrictions and limitations). They 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 and engaging their presentation is, the better their chance of winning.

Supporting XPRIZE Partners include FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), littleBits Electronics and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

National 4-H Council Connects Youth to the Environment with Support from Disney

ational 4-H Council Connects Youth to the Environment with Support from Disney

ational 4-H Council Connects Youth to the Environment with Support from Disney

National 4-H Council, with support from Disney, today launched Connecting Urban Youth to the Environment, a new program that helps youth in urban communities discover and protect nature. Connecting showcases a fun, interactive program in six urban areas throughout the U.S.: Los Angeles; Orange County, Calif.; Orlando, Fla.; Honolulu; New York; and Austin, Texas.

Connecting consists of three components:

1. Exploring Your Environment: Ecosystem Services: Through hands-on activities, youth will learn how living and non-living organisms interact within an ecosystem and provide benefits for humans and animals.

2. Exploring Your Environment: Earth’s Capacity: Youth will become more familiar with environmental stewardship by learning scientific research techniques, responsible practices and innovative technologies that positively address environmental issues such as air and water quality, land use, carrying capacity, product life cycle and ecological sustainability.

3. Exploring Your Environment Capstone Event: At the end of each site’s program, youth will participate in a capstone event (such as a Skill-a-Thon) to demonstrate the knowledge they have gained and provide additional, hands-on opportunities for them to share with their families and communities.

“Young people benefit tremendously from being more aware of the environment and how they can make a positive impact on it,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president & CEO, National 4-H Council. “With their strong commitment to connecting young people to nature, we can’t think of a better collaborator for this exciting, new initiative than Disney.”

A study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology® showed that, despite public perception to the contrary, young people today are less interested in environmental issues than older generations. Connecting Urban Youth to the Environment was created to help address this situation by educating and empowering young people to make positive choices that benefit themselves, their families and their communities. The program will enhance youth’s out-of-school experience and will take place through 4-H Clubs and at day camps through November. It is part of 4-H’s commitment to teach young people about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
