If you’re interested in creating a Destination Imagination team, or just want to know what it is, visit Mr. Beard during his Thursday office hours in library office 223E. We already have one three-person team of DI veterans representing GW this year, and we have the opportunity and space for more teams. Due to a limited number of high school teams in Denver, GW teams have a high likelihood of moving on to State and Global final competitions. Winners also receive scholarship money!
