Finalists win a trip to California for final judging and a trip to Disneyland, and their projects will be on display at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.

Coinciding with the May 3 release of Iron Man 3, four grand prize winners will accept their awards at a special ceremony, followed by a screening of the movie.
