They now need your help to send them to the GLOBAL competition in Knoxville, Tennessee. Any help is appreciated. The cost is 900 per child. It is May 21st - May 25th. It is a huge honor as only a few schools from this area made it that far. We are doing fundraising to offset this cost. Please see the following message that was on the Peoria Public Schools website and newsletter.

Last Saturday Destination Imagination teams from all over the state gathered in DeKalb to compete in the Illinois Affiliate Tournament. The teams presented their solutions to a variety of open-ended challenges and completed fast-thinking Instant Challenges in the hopes of winning a chance to attend the Global Finals. Of the 11 District 150 teams that participated in the event, five of them finished in the top of their categories and qualified for the Global Finals, which will take place in Tennessee in May.
