Eighty-six Orange County students were selected by their high schools for their efforts to strengthen their communities, think creatively, conserve nature and live healthier as part of the Disneyland Resort’s “Dreamers & Doers” awards.
The community service program was created by the resort with the goal of encouraging and spotlighting high schoolers who give back to their communities through volunteering and other work.
Of the initial 86 honorees, 35 students were selected as “Shining Stars,” winning pay-it-forward grants of $1,000 to give back to their high schools, the opportunity to participate as “Honorary Disney VoluntEARS” at a volunteer event in February, and the opportunity to attend a celebratory luncheon in March. At the luncheon, five of the 35 “Shining Stars” will be announced as the program’s top “Luminaries” and will have the opportunity to award a $3,000 grant to their favorite Orange County charitable organization.
