Algoma School District Destination Imagination® (DI) Is Raising Money To Send The Elementary Level Service Learning Team Project Superheroes 3.0 To Kansas City For Global Finals® (GF)
How do you feel about a program that has over 90,000 student participants on over 16,000 teams from 48 states and 31+ countries, inspiring a global community of learners to utilize diverse approaches in applying 21st century skills and creativity?Algoma School District (ASD) participates in this very program and for the 2018-19 season has 50 students making up 9 teams!
By virtue of a 1stor 2ndplace finish at the BayLake Regional tournament held March 2, 2019, in Sturgeon Bay, all eight of our competitive level teams advanced to the State tournament held in Green Bay on April 13, 2019. Based on a 1st, 2nd, or 3rdplace finish at the State tournament, a team qualifies to move on to Global Finals, the International tournament previously held each year in May at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. For nine consecutive seasons, a team from the ASD DI program has qualified to compete at GFsand in 2018 our Elementary Level Fine Arts team placed 8thin the WORLD!
For the 2019 season, the Elementary Level Service Learning team Project Superheroes 3.0 earned the State Championship title and in May will travel to Kansas City, MO, the new location of GFs.This is the 2nd time this team will compete at the International level.
We are fortunate that our school district supports the program from the Regional level through the State level. Where DI differs from most scholastic competitions is that there is a tournament at the International level (Global Finals). It is at this level where we become self-funded.
The cost to send one team to compete at Global Finals is nearly $9000. In addition to the many fundraising events we hold throughout the year, we rely on donors such as yourself to make sure our teams are able to represent Algoma on the International stage. For a donation of at least $50, your name will appear on the team shirts that will be worn in front of tens of thousands of people! We will also promote you on our website and Facebook page.
