Jefferson Award: Destination Imagination Team

Posted:

The Imagination Destination Team from Stevens Point Pacelli High school has been recognized with a Jefferson Award. The  team is made up of high school seniors: Max Lundgren, Katie Olson, Sydney Otis and Courtney Kizewski.

Imagination Destination is a program that challenges teens to solve problems in a group. The theme of the competition is One Simple Decision.

The Pacelli students chose to tackle the issue of distracted driving which can end with deadly consequences. As part of their efforts, the students raised $10,700 to purchase a distracted driving simulator.

Students raised the money with the help of a foundation, community members and businesses. The students say they are proud of their efforts to bring the life-saving simulator to their community.
