The Underdogs: Allisonville's Destination Imagination Team
Organized by: Emily Hodson
June 25, 2016
Six months ago I had a seed of an idea: challenge some of my students to compete in Destination Imagination, a competition that can best be described as 'MacGyver at the Olympics'. We would face seasoned teams, with years of experience and a culture of success. Our team took the seed, and from it has blossomed an opportunity we never envisioned. This group of boys and girls put in countless hours of work to advance through Regionals. Then revised their plan and won at State! They have exceeded all of our expectations. We now have a chance to attend the Global finals in Knoxville, TN. We never imagined we would prevail against such seasoned competition. This opportunity will allow the team to compete against, and work with, students from around the world. But the costs to go are greater than we anticipated. We want to make our families, our school, and our community proud. We want to push ourselves further, have life-changing experiences, learn new things about ourselves and the world. We need your help! No amount too small. Every gift is appreciated. Here come the Underdogs!
