After winning honors for creativity and problem solving in local, state and regional tournaments, an 8th grade team from Millersport Jr. High is heading to Destination Imagination’s Global Finals — the largest creative thinking and problem solving competition in the world — May 23-26 in Knoxville, TN. They will compete in Project Outreach, one of seven difficult, open-ended challenges that require youth to apply science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), in addition to improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication, innovation, teamwork and community service challenges. “We are extremely grateful to Angie Ulrich, who got us involved in Destination Imagination in the first place and to our school district and community for all their support,” said Team Manager Lori Dupler.
