Kailua teen chosen as one of six winners in Big Hero 6 Challenge

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

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.

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.

Kailua teen Kelsey Murobayashi was one of the 6 teenagers chosen for her idea on how to alleviate traffic congestion. Kelsey got to 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, as well as  other prizes.
