The students selected for the Shining Star distinction include a second grade student who assists disabled students, an eighth grade student who created a documentary that promotes South African girls’ education, and a senior in high school who helped a friend lose more than 100 pounds.

Nearly 400 students were chosen by their school for the award, and from the 2014 Disney Dreams and Doers a panel of judges selected 15 Shining Stars from elementary, middle, and high schools in Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, and Seminole counties.

“Here at Walt Disney World Resort, we continue to be impressed by our community’s youngest citizens and are inspired by the positive impact they have on Central Florida,” said Nancy Gidusko, director of community relations for Walt Disney World Resort. “Through compassion, vision and hard work, these dedicated students act on their dreams of changing the world.”

The Disney Dreams and Doers Shining Stars receive a Mickey Mouse statue (called a “Mousecar”), a gold medallion, and an annual theme park pass for themselves and their immediate family.
