On Saturday, March 26, a team of 4th and 5th grade students from Saltonstall Elementary School came in first place in their event at the Destination Imagination (DI) state tournament in Worcester. With your help, the team of 5 boys and 1 girl will be on their way to the global competition in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 25-28.
DI teaches 21st century skills and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) principles through creative and collaborative problem solving challenges.
”DI of the Tiger,” managed by Artie and Kim Sullivan, have been a team since kindergarten. Over the years, they have developed a team chemistry that was evident to both the DI regional and state appraisers of the improv event in which they competed.
Nicholas and Casey Griffin, Jacob Piña-Harding, Chris Jackson, Annabelle Johnson, Liam Sullivan, and their managers have trained weekly for the past 5 DI seasons in order to reach this goal. Please consider contributing to their tournament fund so they may have the honor of representing Salem, Massachusetts at DI Globals.

Thank you to everyone who's donated so far. I can't tell you how much we appreciate it. I just wanted to give a little bit more detail on what your donation will be funding. We've never had a team go to globals before so we were unaware of the huge price tag associated with it. Not only are there thousands of dollars in fees and registrations but each team member needs housing, meals, and travel expenses. So your donation will be put towards those fees as well as to help offset the cost to families throughout the trip. We are aiming to fund as much of the trip as possible so that our team and their families can get the full experience and be able to stay on campus with the rest of the global final participants. Any additional funds that are not used will be donated back to the Salts PTO for their playground fund. That you again and please share this page with everyone you know on every social media platform :)
