Letter to the Editor, 30 April 2019: Thank You from DI Teams TEJKMO and The Skittleworms


By Destination Imagination Teams
TEJKMO – Grade 5: Tyler Munsie, Eliza Dickert, Jacob Loroutas, Kevin Visoka, Mina Belir and Owen Walton
The Skittleworms – Grade 7: Ada Cooprider, Toby Favalora, Rachael Hsu, Evan Kelly, Hayden McAllister and Jane Stewart

We are so grateful for all of the family, friends, neighbors, and supporters who ate at Ginger Japanese Restaurant on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, as part of the Destination Imagination Fundraiser.

Thanks to your support, we were able to raise significant funds towards the registration expenses for the two Bedford teams representing Massachusetts in the Destination Imagination Global Finals in Kansas City in a few weeks.

Team TEJKMO (Grade 5) and the Skittleworms (Grade 7) will team up again and will be selling concessions to continue at the K-12 Art Show this weekend to fundraise for their Global Finals registration fees. If you attend the art show, stop by the booth and the students can tell you more about their award-winning creative projects integrating science, engineering, and the visual and performing arts.  The two teams have also established a joint GoFundMe set up for anyone who would like to contribute directly to offsetting tournament fees and travel expenses. https://www.gofundme.com/f/bedford-destination-imagination-global-finals?fbclid=IwAR28JK_8H8e78eAPQtbI8Iia2pIdKBhTq_5KBsIhEiC5DQz-vGWoqmuid_I

Both teams will be fundraising through pop-up snack stands and bake sales around town, and the Skittleworms have a t-shirt fundraiser through May 11th.  You can find more information at www.skittleworms.com.

Our two teams are very excited and proud to have earned the opportunity to represent Bedford in international competition, and we are very thankful to have the support of the community behind them!
