HCPS DI teams compete in the Global Tournament in Tennessee

Each year, HCPS students compete in Destination Imagination (DI). DI is a school-sponsored competition where students must use ingenuity, creativity, and teamwork to collectively work through real-world problems. Teams of seven students choose one of six challenges that focus on creative problem-solving and engineering.

DI held its State-level competition in April, where 10 teams from HCPS competed. Six teams received a qualifying score to advance to the Global Competition in Knoxville, Tennessee at the end of May.

Congratulations to our teams that competed at the Global Tournament; you made us proud!
