Record number of CCSD DI teams heading to Global Finals

​The Cherry Creek School District is sending a record number of teams to what may be the largest Destination ImagiNation (DI) Global Finals ever! More than 8,000 students on 1,400 teams will compete in the Global Finals May 20-26 at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Among them will be 13 teams from Cherry Creek Schools, the most that have ever qualified for the Global Finals.

“That’s a testament to the quality of the work our students are doing, as well as the support they’re getting from their teachers and parent volunteers,” said Pearl Schwartz, who, along with Maureen Dewar, are DI regional directors for Cherry Creek Schools. “Our students are demonstrating outstanding creativity, collaboration and critical thinking as they work on their challenges and presentations.”
