MISD has Nine Teams Qualify for the Global Finals

This year, Midlothian ISD had 13 competitive teams competing in the Lone Star Finals Virtual Destination Imagination Tournament held in March 2021. This tournament was 100% virtual and pushed our students to even greater heights of creativity! Because of the virtual format, our students had to combine their fine arts, engineering, theatrical, and problem-solving skills with a whole new set of technical skills needed to solve these all-new virtual challenges. From video game creation to epic remixes of old stories, our students used their creative problem-solving skills to reach an all-new level of amazing. We have nine teams qualifying for the Global Finals, which will happen in June, with four first-place finishes, four second-place finishes, and one third-place finish in the team challenges. We also had three teams win the award for the highest instant challenge overall.
