Two Moorhead Destination Imagination teams took top honors in the State Destination Imagination Tournament on April 20 in Champlin Park, Minn.
The Yards for Youth team of seventh-, eighth- and ninth-grade Horizon Middle School and Moorhead High students took first in ProjectOutreach. The team members addressed a community need with their Yards For Youth sew-a-thon in which they sewed (with the help of volunteers) and donated 325 pillowcases to Sanford Children’s Hospital. The team had to make a movie on its project and incorporate a press conference into an eight-minute presentation.
Both teams will compete against teams from around the world at Global Finals on May 22-25.
