LatinaLista — What kid doesn't want to be a rock star -- or at least pretend they're one?
Well, Disney.com wants to grant that precise wish for several lucky wannabe rock stars.
The site launched their U Rock 2 contest where registered members of the site (sign-up is free) download the song of one of their favorite Disney artists -- Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Mitchell Musso or Steve Rushton -- download some graphic images, borrow someone's video camera and rock out to the selected song in a 40-second video that is uploaded to the contest site.

Once on the site, people will vote for their favorite "Rock Star." Prizes include a trip to Los Angeles, an in-studio "take over" at Radio Disney and a visit to the set of a Disney Channel show.
The best news is that there are several opportunities to win. Voting categories include:
"Rock of Fame" -- best overall video for each song.
"Tricked Out" -- video with the best graphics, editing and special effects.
"Sweet Groove All Star" -- the fan with the best dance moves.
"Mega Pipes" -- best singing.
"Aww...some!" -- the cutest rockers.
Deadline to submit videos is July 12. Finalists in the categories will be announced July 17 with voting going on through the end of July.
BUT in a special partnership with Latina Lista in honor of U Rock 2, Disney has given Latina Lista three U Rock prize packages, which feature official Disney speakers with a CD of the four Disney-artist songs contestants can use in their videos -- all to give away to three lucky Latina Lista readers.
To win, just send an email to Latina Lista and tell us why U Rock! Don't be shy, we never brag on ourselves enough.
The first three readers who respond will each win a U Rock prize package.
