This past weekend was a day of trolling around for students and teachers throughout the District who participated in Destination Imagination Winter Blitz Workshop. With the Trolls World Tour movie theme, more than 1,700 elementary and secondary students from 125 schools came together for a day of fun as they prepare for regional, state and global DI competitions.
Dressed in troll costumes during the workshop, Student Activities staff and presenters engaged more than 215 Dallas ISD DI teams in performance-based and hand-on activities throughout the day.
“The workshop teaches team members to work cooperatively,” said Student Activities Coordinator Angie Nuno. “The Winter Blitz Workshop is always an exciting and fun event for Student Activities. It provides an opportunity for students to explore their creativity with instant challenges that forces them to solve problems using their imagination.”
The Dallas Regional DI Tournament will be held Feb. 29 at Conrad High School. About 300 teams from Dallas ISD schools will be competing at the regional tournament.
“With one of the largest DI programs in Texas, Dallas ISD always has more than 25 teams qualify for the state competition,” said Student Activities Director Sharla Hudspeth. “The DI program has grown tremendously over the years because it motivates our students to seek solutions to life challenges working together as a team.”
