The pride of Massachusetts, perennial powerhouse the G.E.E.K.S. (Great Educated Entertaining Kids), have once again cracked the Global Finals in the Destination Imagination tournament.
In order to make it from the Tri-Town to Knoxville, Tenn., for the competition, the team needs your help. On Sunday, May 5, the G.E.E.K.S. – made up of Old Rochester Regional Junior High Schoolers Sara Lafrance, Holly Frink, Ed Krawczyck, Rikard Bodin, and Kyle Rood – will host a car wash at the Mattapoisett Fire Station.
The travel expenses are just one more problem for these dynamic students to solve. Destination Imagination, incorporated in 1999, is a New Jersey-based nonprofit organization with international reach. Its mission is to teach students from kindergarten to college three skills: creativity, teamwork and problem-solving.
“This is the Super Bowl of Destination Imagination,” Rood said. “Last year we placed ninth in the world! Please help us get there again.”
The car wash starts at 10:00 am and runs through 2:00 pm on Sunday at the Mattapoisett Fire House.
