Alamo DI team 2024

Alamo’s Destination Imagination Team, the Brushstroke Buccaneers, is headed back to Global Finals! The team, made up of six 5th graders, earned 1st place at their State competition. Destination Imagination is an international program for students that fosters creativity, problem-solving, communication skills and much more with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) challenges. There are six challenge categories teams can choose and prepare for in competition. There’s also an Instant Challenge at competition that students have to do on the spot. 

This year’s team created a solution to the Fine Arts Challenge called IN Motion. The team had to pick a work of art and then create a story inspired by the work of art. It had to include a static and dynamic character along with a conflict and resolution. It all comes together in a skit just a few minutes long. “DI is a student-driven program,” says Terry Webber, one of the team’s managers. “The kids get to make the decisions. I think that is a powerful attraction for students; they earn the rewards from their hard work and dedication.”

The team is busy fundraising to help pay for their trip to Global Finals where they’ll meet kids from all over the world. The competition is May 22-25 in Kansas City, MO.
