Star Wars fans can continue to use their fandom for a good cause with this year’s Star Wars: Force for Change philanthropic initiative. Disney and Lucasfilm are teaming up with the global K-12 nonprofit robotics organization, FIRST, to inspire the next generation of heroes and innovators. Through Star Wars: Force for Change, we will be providing financial, in-kind and mentorship resources to help expand access to FIRST programs for more students around the world!

The team and I at Walt Disney Imagineering have been long-time supporters of FIRST, providing mentorship, engineering support and creative insights for years. We actually hosted the annual FIRST championship at EPCOT from 1995 through 2002.

The annual FIRST championship at EPCOT, which lasted from 1995 through 2002, at Walt Disney World Resort

Now, over 20 years later, we are joining forces with FIRST once again to bring hands-on learning opportunities and mentorship to even more young minds. Check out this video to hear from Mark Hamill on this collaboration and its impact on S.T.E.M.:

Here’s how you can get involved: Simply retweet this video from the official Star Wars Twitter account with the hashtag #StarWarsFFCSweepstakes and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a vacation to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort! This vacation will include a guided tour by a Disney Imagineer through the land, so you can see Batuu from an insider’s point of view!

The best part? You’ll be helping spread awareness of FIRST and playing a role in empowering young people to shape the future.

  • If you click on the “retweet this video” link it takes you to the Twitter post. From there you can retweet it and add the hashtag as described above.

  • The above address is no good. There is mention of the sweepstakes but the link just takes you to the Star Wars Twitter account, which makes no mention of the sweepstakes. So currently there appears to be no way to enter.

  • I am also receiving an error when clicking the link.

  • Hello. The link doesn’t work for the rules and details. Can you please update it? Thank you!
