A local DestiNation Imagination team competed in China this month and brought home the gold.
According to Minnesota Affiliate Director, Pamela Schroeder, our team from Blaine High School brought home a First Place in the structure challenge, and a First Place in Instant Challenge. This was the second Beijing International Invitational, and the team's second (and third) victory there. The team name is "If I told you I would have to.....TOP SECRET". The members are in grades 7-11. (click on photo)
It was a very competitive environment. In addition to 575 Chinese teams performing in their country's tournament, there were 25 international teams from Canada, Qatar, Mexico, Turkey, Poland, Korea, and three US teams. Winners at this event will advance to Global Finals in Knoxville, TN in May.
Taking first place in the Instant Challenge was especially significant because this was the first time a trophy was issued in China for Instant Challenge.
Congratulations go to the Blaine DI Team!
