The Curious Clovers from Cloverdale Elementary School recently captured first place in the Regional Destination Imagination competition held on the Noblesville Freshman Campus in Noblesville. By taking first place in the Improv category, the team earned the right to compete on Saturday at the State level. Teams placing first or second at the State level will be eligible to attend the Global Finals held in May.

Destination Imagination is an educational program in which students solve open-ended challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. At the tournament their skills are also put to the test with an instant challenge. The Curious Clovers choose the Mythology Mission. In this challenge they were to choose six countries along with six mythical creatures and gather data and research on each. They are also given a list of props in which they are to choose certain ones to bring. The props they chose include a walking stick, mop, cooking pan, book, hat, gloves, mailing labels, duct tape, Velcro, bungee cord and a box of paperclips. At the site, the team then draws envelopes that contain the country and three props they will get to use in their skit. They are then given five minutes to prepare the skit all while the audience is watching. At the end of the prep period they take their places and get ready to perform their skit, only to be handed an unexpected problem that they must also incorporate into the skit.

The team members include; Tyce Jackson, Hannah Long, Annika Whitlock, Jimmy Tate, Evan Williamson, Sarah Baker and Eddie Mannan. The team coach is Brad Sandy.

The Elementary school would like to wish a good luck to the team as they compete for the state title.
