CCV DI Team – First Place

Congratulations!

We are very excited to announce that our team, from Cripple Creek/Victor JH/SH won first place for their presentation of “In It Together” at the Destination Imagination Regional Competition on February 25nd at Summit Elementary School in Divide, Colorado.  The students participating were:  Jacob Walinski, Sarah Wuellner, Alex Best, Hannah Border, Gabriel Patterson.

The students have worked very hard as a team all school year and put together a strong presentation.  They created their own props, wrote their own story, designed a weight-bearing structure and worked as a team to solve an impromptu problem.

Their 8-minute skit was written to solve a world problem involving two nations.  Over the past several months they wrote, rewrote and revised their script until they were satisfied that it would meet the Destination Imagination requirements.  As a result of their hard work, they not only earned First Place in the competition, but they learned to work together, to collaborate, to reach their common goals.

The state competition will take place on April 22nd at the Auraria Higher Education Center in Denver, CO.  We wish them all the best of luck!
