The results are in and Londonderry did extraordinarily well at the Global Finals! All three teams competed in the ViDIo Lit Hits Challenge with a focus on Playwriting, Literature, Fine Arts/Theater Arts (Music, Choreography), Technical Design and Construction, Design Process, and Teamwork.
- The team from South School finished in 10th Place out of 64 teams! They did an exceptional job for this group of 5th graders.
- The team from Londonderry Middle School finished in 6th Place out of a 65 teams! Not only that, these 8th graders received a very special DaVinci Award for Outstanding Creativity. This was the only DaVinci Award given in that challenge, in any of the three age levels.
- The team from Londonderry High School finished in 5th Place out of 54 teams! With 8 consecutive visits to Global Finals, this marks the 5th time that these juniors have scored in the top 10!
Special Note: Teams at the Global Finals are scored in three different areas, which all combine for the overall tournament score. The three areas are the Central Challenge which is the actual 6 minute performance the team brings to Globals, the Side Trips which are two special projects the team brings and incorporates into their performance, and the Instant Challenge which is an unknown problem the team must solve and perform on the spot.
Both the LHS team and the LMS team received top scores and finished in 1st Place for their Central Challenge.
Congratulations to the Londonderry Destination Imagination organization, to Laura Lee who is the district coordinator, and to the Londonderry School District for all of their support. Londonderry can be very proud of their unbelievably creative kids!
