When Ted Turner created Captain Planet twenty one years ago, it was for those who will be leading us into the future and living it - exactly Rocket21's membership, said Christina Stevens, Executive Director (Interim) for the Captain Planet Foundation.

"Dream Green" is the first wave in kids' social network Rocket21’s "Dream Here Dream Big" contest series – and one student with a passion for the environment will win an unforgettable experience.
“Rocket21 is about supporting all kids’ dreams, every single day. But we are also scanning the globe 24/7 for once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to inspire our members’ imaginations and extend their passions. Our 'Dream Green' promotion is one of those opportunities. The winner will remember this experience fifty years from now,” said Rocket21 President and COO Jodell Seagrave. “Our partnership with Captain Planet Foundation brings direct access to world-class environmental experts to all our members, and this promotion is an exciting enhancement.”
Hundreds of experts, called R21 PROs, from hundreds of fields have been invited to interact with kids. They include explorers, artists, ecologists, business executives, entertainers, scientists, engineers, nurses, doctors, educators, and more – people who do some of the amazing things kids dream of doing.
“When Ted Turner created Captain Planet twenty one years ago, it was for those who will be leading us into the future and living it - exactly the student membership of Rocket21. Our mission is to inspire, create and empower the environmental stewards of tomorrow and this is a great way to spread the word,” said Christina Stevens, Executive Director, (Interim) for the Captain Planet Foundation.
Rocket21 student members will have the opportunity to share their ideas for how to reduce air pollution, keep drinking water clean, help keep oceans and its habitat safe, conserve energy, or other ways to protect the planet. Taking into consideration the different ways in which kids express themselves, there are four ways to enter the contest – writing, art, photos, or videos.
Executives and board members from Captain Planet Foundation and Rocket21 will serve as judges. One student (plus a friend and parent) will attend the Captain Planet Benefit Gala in Atlanta. Click here for more details. Deadline for entries is November 22nd.
Rocket21 provides unprecedented access to world-class experts and organizations while protecting them with a combination of state-of-the-art, real-time filtering and human moderation, extensive safety and security precautions, and a specialized infrastructure designed to keep kids safe.
