6th Grade Class in Iowa Wins Disney’s Planet Challenge

Disney’s Planet Challenge Winners
Last week Mickey Mouse surprised a 6th grade class in rural Mediapolis, Iowa, as Grand Prize winners of our first ever nationwide Disney’s Planet Challenge – an environmental learning competition for 4th – 6th grade classrooms. Thousands of classrooms across the country enrolled in the competition.

Mrs. Schnedler’s winning class worked hard throughout the school year on their Disney’s Planet Challenge project to help restore the natural habitats of the Northern Bobwhite Quail whose dwindling population is a significant environmental issue facing Des Moines County. Soon they’ll be going to Disneyland to enjoy activities and be honored in a recognition ceremony. You can see more about their story and their class project on Disney Channel later next month. In the meantime, enjoy this video of the surprise announcement from Mickey during a school assembly last week.


  • Congratulation, kids ! You deserve it ! I hope we’ll get to learn about what you did in the next few weeks.
