District Teams Compete in Regional Destination Imagination Tournament

Teams representing Mariemont City Schools participated in the Destination Imagination regional tournament. Each team, which has been working together throughout the past few months, competed in a specific category using creative thinking, critical thinking and collaborative problem solving to present a challenge to a panel of judges.

Terrace Park Elementary had 10 teams participate; Mariemont Elementary had nine teams; Mariemont Junior High School had two teams; and Mariemont High School had three teams. Six of these teams will advance to the state tournament in April. They were selected by earning the highest score in their challenge group after competing among the other teams in front of a panel of “appraisers” and competing in an Instant Challenge.

"Congratulations to all of the teams for their creativity, teamwork and hard work putting together terrific presentations!" said Linda Lee, principal at Terrace Park Elementary. "Every student represented our district so well. I am proud of each and every one of them." 

A few teams received special recognition. The "Explorer Kids" team, comprised of 2nd grade students from Terrace Park Elementary, received the DaVinci Award. The "Traveling Imaginationer Bulldogs" team, also comprised of 2nd grade students from Terrace Park Elementary, received the Spirit of DI Award. And the "DI=ID" team, comprised of 7th grade students, won the DaVinci Award for their central challenge.
