Applicants wanted for Destination Imagination

Applications are being accepted for Destination Imagination for 2009/2010. The program is open to all students in grades K-12 in the Barnesville Exempted Village School District.

Destination Imagination is a community-based, school-friendly program where young people take what they know and what they do well and learn to apply it to solve Challenges. They work cooperatively on a team and push the limits of imagination to best not their competition, but themselves.

Teams of up to seven members work together to learn Creative Problem Solving tools and to apply them along with the team's particular talents to solve DI Challenges.

Participants will develop lifelong skills that carry over into everyday life -- but most of all, they will have fun, discover talents they never knew they had, become friends with other young people they might not have never met and reap the rewards of teamwork and friendship as they grow and learn.

Application forms are available at the schools and should be turned in by Sept. 21.

Volunteer coaches are needed. The more coaches, the more students can participate. For more information, contact Vickie Doudna at 425-2049.
