Clover Girls To Compete At Destination Imagination Global Finals In Tennessee

Have you ever had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? The Shadow Clovers of Cloverdale Middle School have! They have been competing as a team in Destination Imagination for the past four years. This year they received a first place award at the Southeast Regional Tournament and a second place finish at the Indiana State Tournament. Their hard work and dedication has earned these ladies the opportunity to represent Indiana at the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Knoxville, Tennessee, May 20-24.

Destination Imagination’s purpose is to inspire and equip students to become the next generation of innovators and leaders. Annually, they offer seven new academic standards-based Challenges in STEM, Improvisation, Visual Arts, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Each Challenge is openended and enables student teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation.

The Shadow Clovers compete in an improve challenge named Pandemonium. In their state performance, these girls had five minutes to create a skit that involved an astronaut, a monster, a fish monger, and solve a pandemonium in which all major decisions in the skit were solved by using a magic eight ball.

The fifth grade team is comprised of Pheobe McDonald, Kiara Boyd, Ruthie Mann, Lily Monnett, Michaela Nees, Sadie Priest, and Autumn Lewellen. They are coached by Jennifer Mann and Jessica Fidler.

The Shadow Clovers’ goal is place in the top 25 at Globals. Be on the lookout for the girls in the black bandannas in future articles to update you further.
