Seven Saline Destination ImagiNation teams ranging from the elementary to the high school level competed on March 7, 2015, at the Region 5 Tournament in Parma, Michigan at Western High School.  These 37 students represented seven teams that have worked hard since Fall 2014 to complete a set of Central Challenges and Instant Challenges. Destination ImagiNation Inc., or “DI”, is a creative problem solving organization for students from elementary school through college.  Teams of up to seven members compete in various challenges that require complex thinking, problem solving, teamwork and creativity.  The organization holds regional, affiliate, and international competitions to encourage creativity in the world's youth.

All 7 DI teams placed first or second in their division, and will proceed to the Affiliate Finals competition April 18th, at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.  This is equivalent to an all-state competition.  Teams who then place first or second at the Affiliate Finals will be eligible to proceed to the Global Finals event in May 2015.  Global Finals is the culminating event of every Destination ImagiNation season. Each year, more than 1,000 teams from 30 countries gather at Global Finals to showcase their top-ranking Challenge solutions.

Saline DI as a non-profit raises money every year to support teams.  We will be hosting its first annual Barn Sale & Bake Sale on April 24-25 on Judd Road in Saline.  If you’d like to support these teams, you can help in a few ways:
