Dig In, Elementary. Highbridge Hill Elementary, New Ipswich, #130-01753

On Saturday the Highbridge Hill Elementary School Destination Imagination team will be holding a combination vendor/yard sale fundraiser at the Mascenic Regional High School gymnasium in New Ipswich from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be a variety of new and used items up for grabs. There will also be a chicken barbecue from noon to 2 p.m. All proceeds from the event will help to cover the expense of sending the team to the DI Global finals in Knoxville, Tenn., May 21-24.

The team made up of six elementary school children, chose and worked for six months on a technical based challenge called “Dig In.” The challenge required them to come up with a solution to a problem while following very specific parameters. They also had to present their solution in skit format.

They competed and earned first place in the regional competition and second place in the state competition, which scored them high enough to move on to the global competition where they will face teams from 17 different countries.

If you would like to participate by having a table at the event, the cost is $20 per table, or $15 if you bring your own. The DI team is also accepting donations of sellable items. For more information about the sale or for chicken barbecue tickets, please contact Shauna at 878-4873 or email tracierocky@yahoo.com.
