Disney Dreamers and Doers Program Accepting Self-Nominations

For 30 years the Disney Dreamers and Doers Academy has been honoring students throughout Central Florida who strive to make the world a better place. Last year nearly 400 students were chosen to represent their schools as a Disney Dreamer and Doer.

The program is once again accepting self-nominations from students who serve as role models in their classrooms, at home, or in their community. When self-nominating, students are asked to consider what they might be doing to inspire others or explain how they are making the world a better place.

A panel of Disney judges selects 18 Shining Stars from the students selected as their school's Dreamer and Doer. These students in the program attend elementary, middle, and high schools in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, and Polk counties, in addition to the Florida Virtual School. The Shining Stars consistently lead by example and demonstrate outstanding character " they are the best of the best.

Each Disney Dreamer and Doer receives a certificate, medallion and four theme park passes. The Shining Stars also receive a Mickey Mouse statue called a "Mousecar" (it's like an Oscar, but from Disney), annual theme park passes for themselves and their immediate family, a gold medallion, and a special celebration at their school.

Disney says these students in the Dreamer and Doer Program have a special spark and are a bright hope for the future, thanks to the differences they make in their communities. In the past 30 years, more than 12,000 students in Central Florida have been recognized as a Disney Dreamer and Doer.

If only we had lived in Florida, I would have loved for my kids to participate in this!
