Help Winterport Fourth Graders Make Their Way To The Destination Imagination Global Competion
An amazing group of 7 fourth grade students from The Leroy H. Smith School Destination Imagination team in Winterport need your help!
What is Destination Imagination?
- Destination Imagination is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause-driven organization. They inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders.
- Every year, Destination Imagination, Inc. impacts more than 125,000 kids. They receive support from 38,000 volunteers, who help run our programs in free spaces like classrooms, living rooms, and auditoriums around the world.
- Researchers reported, “Students who participated in DI outperformed comparable students who had not participated in DI on assessments measuring creative thinking, critical thinking and collaborative problem solving.”
This Winterport group, “The Freezing Diamonds” plan to travel to the Destination Imagination Global Competition in Knoxville, Tennessee May 21-24! They can’t do this without community support.
They have a goal of raising $10,000 by May 12. This will cover the registration fees, travel expenses and room and board for 14 people.
