The Seven Lakes High School team known as “Frenzied Revelers" won 2nd place and will advance to state as well.

In preparation for a tournament, students choose a “Challenge," prepare a solution to the challenge, and present their solution in a highly creative skit. Additionally, all teams participate in an “Instant Challenge," which is a test of their improvisational skills. Their final score is a combination of the two events. Over 100,000 students in more than 30 countries participate in DI annually. <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/PublishingImages/022222_Picture_Trophies%20and%20Medals.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><em>Destination Imagination Trophies and Medals</em><br></p></div>
