Invest in the Best Young-
Help us establish a Scholarship Fund that will allow qualifying Destination ImagiNation Teams to compete in the Global Finals Competition in Knoxville, TN where they can utilize their talents at the highest level!
Destination ImagiNation is a nonprofit global problem solving competition for students elementary through college age. Teams of up to seven students compete and create unique answers to open-ended challenges. Students have the opportunity to explore their interests in music, engineering, arts, science, technology, and more--you name a passion, DI fosters it. They learn valuable lessons about working cooperatively toward solutions, utilizing only resources and time given, and without regard for who gets credit or blame once a decision is reached. The recently added Community Service Outreach challenge category is the only challenge that allows students to partner in an unlimited way with outside resources to make a difference.

payable to Destination ImagiNation Region IV (Global Finals Scholarship Fund in the memo) to D.I.-Witness GNC c/o C. Wadzinski, 111 Riverwood Dr, Franklin, TN 37069. More info about the D.I. Global Finals competition is available at http://www.globalfinals.org/
This scholarship will create financial assistance for teams from our local region, who qualify for the Global Finals in Knoxville, TN, that take place in May of each year. The cost to attend the four day Global's event (lodging, food, registration, etc) is $685 per student / Team Manager. Every year, teams have a very short window between the State competition in mid April and the Global Finals in May to raise the money, after earning the right to move on in the competition. Additionally, our team believes the cost to attend Global Finals should never prohibit any team who has demonstrated this level of success from competing. The Global Finals Scholarship is truly a fitting reward for an innovative team's effort!
