Some people are counting down to the last day of school.
Some people are counting down to 01/20/09.
These people are counting down to Wednesday. Destination Imagination teams from almost every state and 13 foreign countries are planning for their biggest event of the year - Global Finals.
These people are also counting the days until Wednesday. Odyssey of the Mind teams are planning for their equally important World Finals.
Over the course of several days, some of the world's brightest kids will be exhibiting their creative problem solving skills in both Tennessee and Michigan. I can almost feel the energy from here. To everyone who is participating, may your duct tape hold, may your contraptions work, and may your props withstand the trip.
Have fun and give your team manager an extra scoop of ice cream after the performance!
