Five finalists will be selected to attend the Red Carpet World Premiere of “Thor: Ragnarok” in Los Angeles and more. The grand-prize winner will attend an immersive three-day mentorship in New York City with Disney Imagineering where her idea will be built, all before presenting her STEM superpower live on Good Morning America!
