UW-Green Bay to host Destination Imagination state tournament

An event that will bring an expected 7,000 people to UW-Green Bay on April 13, 2019 needs your support! The Wisconsin Destination Imagination, Inc.’s (WIDI) board of directors approved an agreement with UW-Green Bay in partnership with the  Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement to host the Destination Imagination Wisconsin state tournament. UW-Green Bay has signed a contract to be the site host for the WIDI for the next five years, beginning this spring on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Destination Imagination, Inc. is a volunteer-led non-profit organization whose purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, they offer seven new standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improv, Visual Arts, Service Learning and Early Learning. Each Challenge is open-ended and enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. Academic tournaments take place around the world where teams have the opportunity to present their solutions to trained appraisers. Students have fun and gain confidence in their ability to solve any challenge. In working to solve our Challenges, teams learn 21st century skills (creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, citizenship and courage) to build on their unique strengths. Founded in 1982, Destination Imagination has impacted more than 2 million students. To learn more, please visit ​http://destinationimagination.org​.

This event will bring around 7,000 people to campus in one day and will be a terrific recruitment tool for the University. With this large of an event, it will be an “all hands on deck” type of day for the University. We will be looking to students and staff to step-up and help out with this unique opportunity we have been given. Therefore, please reserve this Saturday (April 13, 2019) on your calendars to plan to help make this event a successful one.
