Triton’s DI Team Project is Mural on Subway Wall

April 12, 2013

    04/15/13 Members of Triton’s Destination Imagination Team in the Project Outreach Challenge: Reel to Real were recently selected receive a $2500 grant from the Marshall County Community Foundation. 

The team, Bourbon Community Awareness, had to define a need within their community, enlist community partners, and document their progress for the Destination Imagination program. This team chose to have a mural painted in town, and sought out a location, the Bourbon Subway, got permission from the owner, secured a muralist, and have begun to seek funds to complete their project.  

As part of their challenge in DI, the students have to write the grant themselves. The team will present an 8 minute skit, which will include a short movie created by the team documenting how they started their project, where it is at right now, how they plan to complete the project. They will also have to answer panel questions within this time limit at their State Competition which was held April 13th at Hamilton Southeastern HS.

Bourbon Community Awareness team is one of 5 Triton Destination Imagination teams that competed at their State Tournament. Teams that place 1st or 2nd advance to the Global Final Tournament in Knoxville, TN in May.
