A big congratulation goes out to two Lincoln Elementary Destination Imagination teams as both competed at the state DI competition in Denver on April 14.
The Imaginators, coached by Lincoln Elementary teacher Scott Moore, took first place out of 22 teams in a challenge sponsored by the Western Dairy Association and also won a DaVinci award for creativity in solving their challenge.
Team members include Aiden Barrios, Darius Kerns, Eli Miramontes, Haylee Curry, Claire Corbasson, Emma Corbasson, and Damon Hudson.
The DI AKA Camero Red Shots, coached by teacher Kristie Donathan, took third place out of 44 teams in their Central Challenge. Team members include Ana Jurca, Cameron Hudson, Caleb Miramontes, Alex Abila, Kaitlyn Sharpe, Alonso Saenz, and Ethen White.
Both teams have advanced to the Global Finals in Knoxville, Tenn., to compete against teams from around the world. Colorado DI began with over 1,100 teams and only 60 advance to the Global Finals. Lincoln Elementary School is proud to be sending two teams to this event May 22-27. This is the first time in Delta schools history that any team has advanced to this level. In order to send these 14 elementary students and their coaches to this event, they need to raise approximately $1,700 per person. Any support to assist these students in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Kristie Donathan at 210-6173, Scott Moore at 623-3256, or DI coordinator Nancy Green at 874-3700.
