Longacre Destination Imagination Needs your Support!

Congratulations to our Destination Imagination team from Longacre Elementary!

Longacre DI has advanced to the Global Finals tournament. The tournament will be held in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 24-28.

Destination Imagination is an exhilarating after-school activity in which students work in teams to solve mind-bending challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. Only the DI teams that advance past regional and state tournaments are invited to participate in Global Finals. More than 1,100 teams from 44 states, 15 countries gather to show-case their Challenge solutions at Global Finals.

However, going to Global Finals is a financial challenge for our team. We are looking to raise $3,000 to make this opportunity possible.

Can you help us? View our video on YouTube here.

Donations will be accepted by the Longacre PTA.
Checks: Make payable to the Longacre PTA, in the memo line mention Destination Imagination
Cash: Send in an envelope to the office labeled PTA-Destination Imagination, with your first and last name
