Global Finals 2014

22 Apr


Destination Imagination would like to thank each and every one of you who took the time to create and submit a video for the Destination Imagination & Scotch Duct Tape Video Contest. We received more than 100 creative video entries from DI teams around the world, and the DI and Scotch staff had a difficult time narrowing down the results. Based on memorable contest and delivery, overall impact, teamwork, and creativity, here are the 3 finalists:
Creativity to the Power of 6 from Texas
Miss-Perception from Maryland
The Phanny Pak from Washington
Voting starts now for these three finalists!

Are you ready to celebrate 8,000 of the most creative minds in the world? 
Next month, students from more than 15 countries will gather in Knoxville, TN for the world’s largest celebration of creativity and innovation. For those of you who are DI-ers, parents of DI-ers, volunteers or alumni, you know the journey to Global Finals is one that takes an incredible amount of teamwork, courage and perseverance. 
We wanted to try and capture many of the experiences that make Global Finals the most amazing event of its kind and asked DI alum and video editor, Alan Brazzell, if he was up for the challenge. (Thanks, Alan!) We also wanted to create something spectacular that could help all of our DI community in their marketing efforts. With 200,000 DI participants and 38,000 volunteers as his inspiration, we think Alan did an amazing job and couldn’t be more proud.
We’re also hard at work on creating a new Destination Imagination promo video. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the Global Finals 2014 video as much as we do!
