Imagineers heading to state finals

March 13, 2013

Students from around Clarkston competed in the Destination Imagination regional tournament on March 2 at Waterford Kettering High School.

The Imagineers, a team of seven students from North Sashabaw, chose the Real to Reel challenge for which they selected a community service need, recorded a video, and prepared a skit about their work in our community. For their project, they visited a local assisted living facility and entertained the residents. They read to the residents, played games, performed a violin solo, and brought therapy dogs to the center.

At the competition in an 8-minute presentation, the students showed their video, reviewed the project, and conducted a press conference. Their efforts earned them third place and an invitation to the state finals in Mt. Pleasant at Central Michigan University on April 20. Destination Imagination is an extra-curricular activity in which students work in teams to develop creative solutions to complex challenges.
