UPDATE 9/5: The Starlight promotion has been confirmed for the global version of the game in a Square Enix Twitch stream today! No date has been given, but it will be coming west soon! Players simply need to achieve a high score threshold to obtain the Keyblade; it isn't a competition like other events in the game.
