The 2014 California Destination Imagination State Finals tournament, held March 29 at the Riverside Convention Center, was a great success! The creativity and skills of 246 teams of students from grades K-12 was on display as they presented their solutions to one of six Team Challenges and solved an Instant Challenge that was revealed to them only on the day of the Tournament. The top teams earned an invitation to participate in the 2014 DI Global Finals tournament which was held in late May in Knoxville, Tennessee.
With the success of the 2014 Tournament, Dick Pinney, the Director of California Destination Imagination, announced that the 2015 California State Finals Tournament will be returning to Riverside on March 28, 2015. This is due in no small part to the to the excellent facilities and warm hospitality provided by the Riverside community to the students, volunteers, and staff of California Destination Imagination. Pinney says, “We look forward to returning to Riverside again to celebrate the creativity of our students and to once again enjoy ‘A new side of classic California'”.
