Destination Imagination!


There is a severe shortage of appraisers and tournament volunteers for this years Destination Imagination competition and we need your help to fill those roles.

Both appraisers and tournament helpers should register online and provide your team as the team you are representing (W. A. Porter). To register, go to http://midcities.txdi.org/ and scroll down to the appropriate link. It is not a good idea for a parent of a team member to be an appraiser because they have a full day and will not be able to watch their child's performance. The expectations for an appraiser is that they attend a 1/2 day training and then, work the entire day at the tournament.

· Appraiser Training is scheduled for Jan. 23, 2016 from 7:30 am - 1:00 pm. The training location is Grand Prairie ISD, Education Center, 2602 S. Beltline Rd, Grand Prairie, TX

· Regional Tournament- February 27, 2016 at South Grand Prairie High School, 301 W Warrior Trail, Grand Prairie, TX
