Saltonstall – Destination Imagination
c/o 17 Moffatt Rd
Salem, MA 01970
On Saturday, March 26, a team of 4th and 5th grade students from Saltonstall Elementary School in Salem placed first place in their event at the Destination Imagination (DI) state tournament in Worcester. DI teaches 21st century skills and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) principles through creative and collaborative problem solving challenges. With your help, the team will be on their way to the global competition in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 24-28.
”DI of the Tiger” has been a team since kindergarten. Over the years, they have developed a team chemistry that was evident to both the DI regional and state appraisers of the Improvisational and Instant Challenges in which they competed. Nicholas Griffin, Casey Griffin, Jacob Piña-Harding, Chris Jackson, Annabelle Johnson, Liam Sullivan, and their managers, Artie and Kim Sullivan, have trained weekly for the past 5 DI seasons in order to reach this goal.
This is a once in a lifetime event full of educational, cultural and social interaction with other participants from 35 states and 14 countries. It takes place over 5 days at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
Please consider contributing to their tournament fund so they may have the honor of representing Salem, Massachusetts at DI Global Finals. The team is contacting you to ask for financial assistance to help with the costs of sending our team to Knoxville, TN. The total cost for our trip is estimated between $16,000 and $20,000. A contribution to our cause will go a long way in reaching our Goal!!
