Mickey Mouse announces the winners of the Disney Planet Challenge
Yesterday, the 20th March, Mickey Mouse went to Jersey to invite the winners of the Disney Planet Challenge to an all expenses paid trip to Walt Disney World!


The Disney Planet Challenge is a national contest that Disney hosts to draw attention to environmental and conservational concerns. The challenge asks entrant schools of the nation to create projects that provide long term sustainable green objectives.
The winners, a seventh grade class from Jersey heights school Christa McAuliffe, created Project Reservoir, an ecological educational state-designated centre. Yesterday Mickey Mouse went to Christa McAuliffe to announce to the pupils that they had won the challenge and would be awarded with $10,000 to invest in Project Reservoir, $6,000 prize money for the science teachers involved as well as an all expense paid trip to Walt Disney World for all 30 participating students and teachers.
"We wanted a project that was clearly student driven, that had long-term sustainability, and that would have learning process come out of it," said Disney manager of corporate citizenship Christiane Maertens.
Mickey Mouse invited the Jersey school winners to the happiest place on earth on the 12th April for a two night stay, courtesy of Disney World. "I was shedding tears when they announced the news," said twelve year old Dennis Trotta, yesterday. "I couldn't believe it. I never thought we'd be here, that we'd make it to this day."
For your own green concerns why not use your Disney tickets to celebrate Earth Day at Disney World on the 22nd April? We have no doubt there’ll be all kinds of fun and magical ways to celebrate the planet for those with their Disney tickets to enjoy!
