|Destination ImagiNation seeks volunteers|
"Destination ImagiNation (DI)" is a nationwide program which emphasizes problem-solving skills and creativity. With the help from parents and UND student volunteers, Grand Forks children in grades K-5 formed three teams, participated in the program activities, tackled team-chosen challenges, and competed in the state tournament last year. One of our teams even advanced to the global final competition in Knoxville, Tenn., highlighting the end of their school year.
Some teams are starting to form already this year and we seek volunteers to help us out. A volunteer may lead and oversee a group of four to seven children as a team manager, test their improvisational skills by giving routine "instant challenges," or participate as an appraiser for a day in the state tournament held in Casselton, N.D. If interested in volunteering or learning more about the program, please contact me.
