Two Destination Imagination teams are working hard to raise money to travel to global competition in Knoxville, Tenn., May 23-26.
The Global Finals -- the world's largest celebration of student creativity -- features more than 1,400 of the top-scoring DI teams from 45 U.S. states and 14 countries. Scheduled festivities include the Destination Imagination tournament, interactive exhibits, pin trading, skills workshops, international events and more.
The two teams traveling from Delta include one from Delta High School managed by Jill Jurca. Alisa Johnson's team from Garnet Mesa Elementary School was also invited to globals.
The Delta High School team, "Here Comes Treble," competes in the improvisational acting challenge.
The Garnet Mesa team consists of a mixture of third, fourth and fifth graders. "Team Brace Yourself" competes in the scientific category. Both teams also compete in an instant challenge, a problem they must solve in under five minutes.
Each team member has to raise about $1,500 to cover the cost of travel. Businesses and individuals who would like to support the Delta teams are invited to contact Delta High School or Garnet Mesa Elementary for more information.
During a preliminary hearing in Delta District Court on Tuesday, Jan. 15, Judge Steven Schultz found probable cause for second degree murder charges against Heather Jones.
Jones previously faced three counts in the shooting of Ryan Redifer in Paonia on Jan. 12, 2018 -- assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree and violation of a protection order.
