DI Team On To Globals in Tennessee!

   On April 11, the Scandia Elementary DI Team placed second at the state competition in Champlain Park. This finish qualifies the team to go to the Destination Imagination Global Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville! There will be 16,000 students from 20 countries competing at the Global Finals. 
   Destination Imagination is a program that promotes student creativity, team work, critical thinking and problem solving. The Scandia team will perform their "Creature Feature" central challenge. They will also be judged on the "instant challenge" which will be given to the team to solve when they enter the competition arena.
   This is the third time in five years that a Scandia Destination Imagination Team has earned a trip to Globals. Teams went to the competition in 2010 and 2011.
   Good luck to our team at Globals!
