Destination Imagination Teams Place Internationally
St. Monica Catholic School Destination Imagination Teams Place 7th & 9th in INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION!
We are so proud of the St. Monica Destination Imagination teams, The Recycle Disciples (4th grade), and The Bubble Nuggets (5th grade), who just returned from the Global Finals competition last week at The University of Tennessee! They competed with over 9,000 participants from 48 states and 16 other countries.
Our teams earned a place at Global Finals by first placing 1st or 2nd in the Dallas Regional Tournament, then placing in the top six at the Texas State Tournament, the largest tournament in the DI system worldwide.
They competed successfully at Global Finals with our fifth grade team placing 7th worldwide, and our fourth grade team placing 9th worldwide!! They enjoyed an international experience, meeting teams from around the U.S. and the world, and participating in many workshops and activities based on STEAM principles.
Congratulations to Bubble Nuggets team manager, Renee Castro, and team members Ellie M., Grace M., Anjali P., Jules M., Alessandra B., Lili D., and Victoria A. (fifth grade)
And congratulations to Recycle Disciples team manager, Lisa Kolczun, and team members Reese K., Reid M., Zachary F., AnnMarie M., Elise M., Tatiana G. (fourth grade)
Many, many thanks to our supportive parents, the PTO, Dad’s Club, and Mr. Riley for this incredible experience!
