The West Geauga Destination Imagination team recently traveled
to Las Vegas to compete in a competition at the national level. The team consists
of Jenny Wajahn, Lindsay Wargelin, Lauren Wargelin, Allison Tyree, and Jourdyn
Heilinger. These girls utilized their talents in previous competitions to earn
themselves a trip to Las Vegas. The team faired quite well at the competition.
Out of 60 teams from all over the country, in the Destination Imagination Construction
Challenge, West Geauga received first place in the debate! They won a portable
DVD player and, of course, a trophy. They also received first place out of 60
teams for designing an educational tool to teach children about construction.
West Geauga finished 3rd overall and each one of them received a $500 scholarship
and a $100 Visa Card. The team also received 2 special awards - The Best Teamwork
Award and the Best Product Design Award for their educational tool. Great job
