VMHS Destination Imagination teams competed this past weekend at PSJA Southwest. The JV team took 2nd place and Varsity Team took 1st place. The Varsity team will now advance to State Competition on April 6-7, 2018 in Mansfield, Texas.
For this season’s Improvisational Challenge, Treasure!, teams reached different cultures and famous explorers, and they used what they’ve learned to create a skit, live onstage, with barely any preparation. Their skit will include a quest to return a lost cultural treasure to its owner. The cultural treasure was anything from an idea to an artifact or any other type of cultural creation.
However, teams did not know which cultural treasure or explorers they will need to integrate into their skit until right before their presentations. Teams also needed to integrate a sheet as a special prop and show how their characters work together to overcome a setback.
Improvisation helps the students learn how to communicate and collaborate more effectively, think quickly and creatively, and can boost their confidence.
Varsity Team-The Dream Team!
JV Team-The Fabulous four plus Ben!
