On March 29, 2014 our Beverly High School Destination Imagination team won first place in our division at the State Tournament qualifying us to compete in the Global Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, May 21-24, 2014.  Hundreds of towns and cities compete in the tournament annually and we need to raise enough money to now represent the State of Massachusetts.

Most of us have been involved in this program since elementary and middle school.  We are all high school seniors now and consider this a crowning achievement to be able to represent our State in this tournament.

Destination Imagination (DI) http://www.destinationimagination.org/is a non-profit, volunteer-led, cause driven organization whose purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, the program offers seven new standards based challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning.  Each Challenge enables teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation without adults helping. The process is all student driven.

Please help us realize our dream since we were in Elementary School and help fund our trip.  Any little bit helps.

Sincerly Yours,
Liam Beaudoin, Owen Bolas, Alex D'Alfonso, Matt Gill, Ed McFeeters, Ryan Noss and our coach Suzanne Beaudoin

Very proud of all of you. Good luck at globals, which, as we know, sounds way cooler than "nationals."
