The Nashoba Destination Imagination team is heading to the State competition after competing in Regionals on March 3rd. Colleen Henderson, Shannon Henderson, Charlotte Snoonian, and Else Snoonian placed first and won their second Renaissance award during the competition, and are very optimistic about going to the Global Finals competition in Knoxville, Tennessee after having gone the past few years.

Destination Imagination, also known as DI, is a organization in which students ranging from Kindergarten to college-age team up to solve difficult challenges. Some of the challenges include engineering, science, improv, and service learning. Some challenges involve constructing certain structures to solve a problem, then incorporating them into a skit. Other challenges include acting, prop-making, set designing, and being quite creative.

After a few months of planning, each team goes to a Regional competition in the hopes of being able to move on to a State competition. Teams that excel in the State competition are invited to the Global Finals competition to compete against other countries.

The States competition will be held on March 24th at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. If the Nashoba DI team places first, second, or third in the States competition they will be able to attend the Global Finals in May. Nashoba’s DI team placed in 26th at the Global Finals last year, and in 8th place the year before. “DI challenges us to create things creatively. Our props do things that amaze and shock people,” said Shannon Henderson. “That makes our team feel accomplished even if we don’t win.”

Be sure to wish Nashoba DI’s hardworking team good luck before the competition.
