Destination ImagiNation final results

April 1, 2010

Congratulations to all the Destination ImagiNation teams that participated this year.  Each team dedicated many hours — learning the art of creativity, problem solving, and teamwork.  We had more teams participate this year than ever before.

Destination ImagiNation is a unique creative problem solving event where the student teams work together to create a solution that is entirely their own. The team managers merely faciliate the meetings — and cannot provide solutions or input that solves the issue at hand. We celebrate each of these teams accomplishment.

    It has been a year since I coached this team to a winning position (inspired by an initial discussion with Elizabeth Chappell when I had no idea what this was all about).

    Not sure whether any Coppell team participated in this year’s competition – would be pretty disappointed if no one had followed in the footsteps of our trailblazing team from last year!
