After several months of hard work and planning, four Dunbar Destination Imagination Teams competed in the North Regional for DI in Greenbrier, Arkansas on Saturday, February 21st. The four teams competed in four different unique challenges but the result was the same, FOUR FIRST PLACE FINISHES. Now it is on to State competition on March 14th in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and for top finishers, a chance to go to Globals in Knoxville, Tennessee in May.
Get out the big broom because Dunbar has swept up all the gold medals and blue ribbons! Congratulations to the four teams, their parents, the teacher volunteer coaches, and judges.
