Students create drama and build machines at regional tournament
From staff reports
The Trinity Valley North Central Region of Destination ImagiNation is holding its season culminating tournament at Hebron High School in Carrollton Feb. 26. Students in kindergarten through 12th grade will present their solutions to such challenges as creating machines to move materials between towering heights, encountering mythological creatures from other cultures, using energy cycle knowledge to create a circular story and performance and helping Big Bug get through his very bad day. This is an experience that will wow the senses and impress spectators with innovative kid-created solutions to complex problems.
As part of this event, TVNC DI will also hold a silent auction for a variety of items such as sports memorabilia, airline tickets, fine dining and theater tickets. The profits from this event will go toward scholarships for graduating seniors who have shown excellence and longevity in the Destination ImagiNation program.
Destination ImagiNation is the world’s largest non-profit creative problem solving organization that reaches more than 300,000 people annually in 50 states and over 40 countries. The TVNC DI regional organization includes Lewisville, Carrollton-Farmers Branch, Coppell, Denton, Jacksboro, Perrin-Whitt, Vernon, Decatur and Graham public school districts, as well as private and parochial schools and home-schooled groups.

Challenge solutions will be presented from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 26 at Hebron High School and the public is invited to attend at no charge. The silent auction is also open to the public and participants may register for bid numbers at the event. The silent auction closes at 4 p.m.
