Competition Results

On Monday, March 25th, 14 teams from Maharishi School competed at the State level in Destination ImagiNation at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa. It was a wonderful opportunity for so many of our School families to watch the children share their fulfillment of many months of hard work. Competing with over 158 teams throughout Iowa, our students represented themselves with great confidence and dignity. They showed appreciation for each other, as well as for the other schools. Four 1st place winning teams won the right to advance to global competition at the Final Destination, which this year will be held Knoxville, Tennessee at the University of Tennessee from May 22-25.

The four teams that came in first place were: 7th/8th grade team,"It's Your Move"- Josh Adams, Michael Sutherland, Max and Danny Steinberg, Anjali Krystofiak, and Suzannah Schindler; 7th grade team, "On Holiday"- Ace Boothby, Newlin Wilkins, Cooper Rose, Serena Stakland, Luke Stenger, and Eric Van Arsdale; 7th/8th grade team, "Art of Improv"- Anna Sica, Ami Freeberg, Julia Ross, Sammy Goldstein, Bagambhrini Gerace, and Devon Jarvis; and Upper School team, "Dual Dilemma"- Josh Denbaum, Milo Winningham, Shane Bellmer, Aaron Hirshberg, and Sam Rozen. The 7th/8th grade "Art of Improv" team was also awarded the Creativity Award in the Middle School category. All of the teams were outstanding in their performances and oftentimes competed with groups that were two grades above them!

At the Final Destination, these teams will be sharing their presentation with hundreds of teams from all over the world. Coach Mark Headlee has offered our students the opportunity to achieve excellence!
