Students in each grade level are chosen to compete on a Destination Imagination team at our school. These students are chosen based on their creativity, intelligence, ability to think outside of the box, and how well they get along with others.
These students are creative, outgoing, and full of energy.
Destination Imagination gives them the opportunity to express themselves in a theatrical format. They get to write and perform a skit, build props and backdrops, and solve problems. They also must solve an instant challenge. Imagine going into a room, sitting in front of a group of judges, and having to think on your feet to solve a challenge. These kids are good at it!
Recently they won first place in the state affiliate tournament earning them a trip to the Global competition in Knoxville, TN
This trip will make a difference in the lives of our students. The students worked diligently for months and won the state championship in their Project Outreach category. They focused on reducing bullying by spreading kindness.
Their goal was to spread kindness in their community and beyond using Kindness Cards.
They designed a card with an inspirational quote, wrote a survey in Google Forms, and put a QR Code on the back so that they could track the data.
Our school is piloting Google Suites so this was a great way for them to incorporate what they are learning technologically into their presentation. We are also working on STEM certification for our school and these students are leaders in their STEM classes. Destination Imagination is a way for them to showcase their creativity through science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math.
