Carl Junction students return from global finals as winners

A team from Carl Junction Schools returns as the 2nd place overall winner and 1st place instant challenge winners in the Destination Imagination Global Finals.
40 kids from Carl Junction on seven different teams, grades 8 through 12, raised $43,000 to fund their week long trip to the finals in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The competition, which includes challenges in technology, structure, theater or improvisation, attracted 1,700 teams from 42 states and 16 different countries.
Those who participated say it helps develop career skills.
"It helps you think on your feet and you just have to go with what's going on," said junior Michael Karraker.  "It gives you a chance to say, this is what can happen, but something else could also happen, so which one will work better?"
The group hopes to attend the finals again next year.
