Woodward students invited to Destination Imagination Global Finals

Woodward students invited to Destination Imagination Global Finals

Woodward Middle School students Claire Camacho, Zoe Harrington and Max VonNocken-Witmer took first place in their challenge category at a recent Washington State Destination Imagination Tournament.

The victory by the trio calling themselves The Inconceivables has earned the group an invitation to compete at Destination Imagination’s Global Finals Tournament.

Destination Imagination is an educational program where student teams compete against one another in open-ended, creative problem-solving challenges.

Participants accept a challenge from eight different categories: technology, science, engineering, fine arts, improvisational, service learning/project outreach, early learning/rising stars, and instant challenge.

The Inconceivables will be competing in the improvisational challenge category, something that will not be a new endeavor for the team. In 2014, the three students were part of a team that took second place at the Global Finals Tournament.

Hoping to reprise their roles as strong competitors this year, the team will be traveling to Knoxville, Tennessee from May 23 through May 27.

The Inconceivables should certainly have their work cut out for them, as more than 1,300 teams from across the U.S. and 15 other countries will be expected to compete at this year’s tournament.

As they prepare for their next competition, the trio are also fundraising to cover the cost of registration fees and transportation. Donations to the team can be made at www.gofundme.com/inconceivables-global- finals-fund.
