Wonderland BookSavers win the Destination Imagination States Competition!

By Madeline

Today, Team WBS competed in the Connecticut States Destination Imagination Tournament. After driving one and a half hours to arrive at Connecticut College for the Destination Imagination competition, we unpacked our props, practiced, and eagerly awaited the time to present our play.

Our practice and preparation paid off! Each team member did an amazing job remembering lines and cues, and created an engaging, theatrical representation of our project.

In the afternoon, we partook in a hat-making contest, where we attached our team flag to a paper cup/duct tape/paper plate hat constructed Brooks Morgan and the rest of the team. After we created the hat, we marched around in the parade of teams, and then we took our seats for the awards ceremony. After much anticipation, our division was called, and we discovered that we had won first place! We are now looking forward to the next level of competition: The Destination Imagination Global Finals, which will be held in May. The team has worked tirelessly, and we are all excited to progress to the next level.

Thank you Destination Imagination for helping us imagine the world as a better place with one book, one child, and one school at a time!
