WDS to DI Globals 2018

Go4It from West Dodge Station Elementary School in Elkhorn, NE Advances to Destination Imagination's Global Finals

After working all year to create, develop and implement their maze, this amazing group of 4th grade boys achieved honors for creativity, teamwork and innovation in regional and state academic tournaments.

On Saturday, April 7 our first year team Go4It earned 1st place at the Nebraska DI competition and earned the right to compete in Destination Imagination's Global Finals, the world’s largest celebration of student creativity, to be held May 23-26 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Go4It team members include Barry Fries, Jake Janssen, Mason Mercer, Colton Meridith, William Meyer, Garrett Ringenberg, and Asher Tipp.


Go4It will compete with other teams in the Maze Craze, one of seven, open-ended Challenges that require students to apply science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, in addition to their talents in improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication, innovation, teamwork, community service and social entrepreneurship.

We need your help!
We are raising funds to support these kiddos in their quest to attend Globals with 1400+ teams from around the world. The funds will cover registration fees, housing, meals, and transportation plus all event costs. We need your help to get us there!
