Volunteers needed for the Tidewater Region's Destination Imagination (DI) tournament. DI creates 21st Century leaders and innovators through its global, nonprofit program aimed at children in grades K-college. Teams of kids select and solve one of 7 crazy challenges and the more innovative the solution, the better. Challenges can be previewed at: https://www.destinationimagination.org/challenge-program/challenge-previews
We are most in need of volunteers willing to appraise student performances and able to attend a mandatory training session (see below) Support volunteers need not attend training. Community Service Hours available - great for high school & college students, military members, etc.
