Colton is a small unincorporated town in the foothills of the cascade mountains in western Oregon. We have a population of about 2500 people. And a middle school population of around 150 students. Our TAG team is made up of four amazing kids who are very excited about the opportunity to represent Oregon in the "Unlikely Attraction" part of Destination Imaginations "Scientific challenge". Cierra, Anna, Jacob & Laramie have worked incredibly hard and overcome many challenges including some poorly timed inclement weather.
These kids actually built a fully operational vending machine using only cardboard, wood, a couple rubber bands and hot glue! McGyver, you would be proud!
Our team, ThopeWopinnoper chihuahuas, has until April 27th, 2018 to raise enough funds to get the team, manager and chaperones to Knoxville, Tennessee for the week long competition.
Global finals has been the goal of the team from day one. With over 8,000 students from 15+ countries participating in 10+ events. Global finals is “the worlds largest celebration of creativity “. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the team members to compete with thousands of children from around the world.
100% of all proceeds will be forwarded to our schools booster club and earmarked for the DI competition. Any excess funds will be added to their coffers and distributed throughout the district. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
