The Crazy Daisies advances to Destination Imagination's Global Finals,the largest celebration of creativity in the world.

Buffalo, Mn -- After winning honors for creativity, teamwork and problem solving in local, state and regional tournaments, The Crazy Daisies has earned the right to travel to Destination Imagination's Global Finals, the largest creative thinking and problem solving competition in the world, to be held May 21-24 in Knoxville, TN. Team members include: Kira, Meagan, Zolia, Natalie, Gretta, and Madelyn who attend Hanover elementary (Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose school district).

They will compete with other teams in the Scientific challenge, one of seven, open-ended challenges that require young people to apply science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), in addition to improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication, innovation, teamwork and community service.

Destination Imagination has had a positive impact on more than 1.5 million young people and adults who have benefitted from taking part in its acclaimed Challenge Program. This year, another 100,000 young people have competed in tournaments throughout the U.S. and in 30 countries to earn a spot at the Global Finals competition in May. The Crazy Daisies is among more than 8,000 students representing more than 1,250 teams that will advance to Global Finals, which will be held at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville May 21-24.

The Destination Imagination Program allows students K-College to learn and experience the creative process. Quantitative reasoning, problem solving, risk taking, collaboration, presentations and thinking on your feet are some of the important skills learned in the program, said Chuck Cadle, CEO of Destination Imagination. This year, 2013-2014 American Idol contestant and Destination Imagination alum, Rachel Hale, will kick off Global Finals with a performance at Opening Ceremony on May 21.

Destination Imagination will also be presenting their prestigious Risorgimento Award to the Mayo Clinic for its innovative contributions in the fields of science and medicine. This year's Global Finals Innovation Expo will house engaging exhibits from NASA, 3M, National Geographic, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Laser Pegs, Einstein in a Box, and many other innovative companies. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to take a journey through a simulated rainforest and learn about its impact on the planet's ecosystem through the 3M-sponsored, interactive Explore the Uncharted exhibit.

Destination Imagination participants and attendees will also attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the largest group of people wearing duct tape at the event's annual Duct Tape Costume Ball. Destination Imagination is an educational program where student teams are immersed in the creative process needed to solve open-ended challenges, and then present their solutions at regional and state tournaments.
