Destination Imagination Team
Headed to Global Finals in Knoxville!
Three Franklin 8th graders, Eleanor Nielsen, Nariana Aldarondo, and Melody Woothtakewahbitty, along with Cheldelin 8th grader, Arissa Bolster, won 1st place at the Regional Destination Imagination Tournament, 1st place at the State Tournament in Salem, and are now fundraising to attend Global Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville May 20-27.
They competed in the Fine Arts Challenge, Change of Tune, where they created an 8′ long x 6′ tall double-sided wood set on wheels, the rising of Mount Olympus via pulleys and weights, a “spectacle” of a lava ball explosion, and 4 musical parodies. Their 8-minute performance tells the story of the 3 recently dis-empowered undergods of Coffee, Spice, and Silence, and their journey to reclaim their glory and save the world from the all-powerful uppergods, who appear as the arrogant, prideful hand puppets Zeus and Athena; all to the tune of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air Theme song and Mulan.
