My friend Mini Babybel is running this awesome contest that celebrates the aspirations in all of us by showcasing the big things kids want to be when they grow up and what their parents wanted to be when they were little.
This past July, Mini Babybel® brought three lucky finalists and their parents on an all-expenses-paid journey to Chicago, home base of the brand’s U.S. corporate headquarters, to help bring their dreams to life. During their visits to Chicago, Mini Babybel created surprise, exclusive experiences with star role models in their dream professions.
– Cleopatra, who dreams of being a dancer, was introduced to actress and dancer, Julianne Hough. Julianne even choreographed a special routine for Cleopatra.
– Professional football player and former University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron surprised Big Dreamer finalist Dylan, whose dream is to play football for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. Having won many accolades for his teams, AJ shared his wisdom and skills with Dylan in a one-on-one training session, showing him what it takes to be an all-star football player.
– Gabriella aspires to be an artist. Mini Babybel introduced her to the “it-girl illustrator,” Dallas Shaw, known for her work in publications such as Lucky Magazine, Brides, Gotham, WWD, and Elle Décor, as well as her work with New York-based fashion house DKNY and her Instagram page. Dallas gave her a hands-on art lesson while sharing her tips on becoming a successful professional artist.
Please follow the finalists’ experiences on Mini Babybel’s Facebook page. From September 7 – 25, 2015 Mini Babybel voters will decide who will win the grand-prize $50,000 scholarship. Plus, with each vote, Mini Babybel will make a $1 donation to a Boys & Girls Club in the winner’s local market to further support big dreams. Visit the Mini Babybel Facebook and cast your vote for your favorite Big Dreamer! The grand-prize winner will be announced on October 5, 2015.
