This year, the Skittleworms, the elementary level team from Bedford, has qualified for the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Knoxville, TN. They did this by winning at the regional competition, and at states, making them the best in the state of Massachusetts.

The Skittleworms is a team including, Rachael Hsu, Jane Stewart, Toby Favalora, Ada Cooprider, Evan Kelly and Hayden McAllister. They are a team of fifth graders who love to build and create. We spent seven months working on our Destination Imagination challenge solution.  The Skittleworms have been together since 2015. In 2015 we got to states and placed third, coming very close to going to Globals. We have dreamed of getting to go to Global Finals since third grade, and we all thought that that was a unrealistic dream.



Our challenge this year was to create a performance about how a color disappearing changes the world. We had to include research about the color that disappeared, a colorful character who was affected by and/or caused the color’s disappearance. We also had to include a vanishing act, in which something disappeared using technical theater methods. We studied and researched color science, animation, projection, and made a homemade pipe instrument and composed an original song.  We built all our sets ourselves and made all our costumes ourselves. This was our performance at the regional competition.

Global Finals is an amazing experience, where you get to meet Destination Imagination students from other countries, and have the experience of a lifetime, while also performing your skit and doing an instant challenge. But this all comes at a cost.







Global Finals comes at a fee, plus we need to pay for plane tickets, food and housing at the tournament. We need your help to get to Globals so that we can bring our hard work and amazing performance further and meet people from around the world that love creating as much as we do.


Thank you for supporting us and our hard work!
