Farmington team takes global DI title
A group of Farmington middle school students beat out more than 60 other teams from around the country and the world, taking first place in their division at the Destination ImagiNation Global Finals held May 26-29 in Knoxville, Tenn.
The team, called JAM2K, includes Katie Aaron, Kelli Elmer, Jeanna Gaalswyk, Ali Grebner and Maricia Pacheco, and is co-managed by Jan Gaalswyk and Cynthia Kelly.
JAM2K competed in the Do or DI challenge, which asks teams to create a five-minute skit with only seven minutes to prepare after being given all the details they must incorporate into the skit. The challenge focuses on students' improvisational acting, ability to develop a story, teamwork and research skills.
