The 2016 Illinois Affiliate Final is History! - Congratulations to All Teams!

The weather was spectacular on Saturday, April 16, 2016, and so were the teams, as Illinois Destination Imagination held their Affiliate Final! Over 100 teams with student participants ranging from 2nd grade through High School presented their solutions to both the Team Challenge and the Instant Challenge on the DeKalb campus of Northern Illinois University. Congratulations to every team who made the trip to NIU - the extra work and dedication to solving the Challenges was very apparent. 

A huge Thank You to the over 100 volunteers from the ILDI community who made this day possible. It would be  impossible to hold a tournament without you. A special nod to our Challenge Masters from all three Regions and the Affiliate Challenge Masters. Great job!

We also wish to thank our gracious host campus, the NIU Cares student Volunteers, and the NIU STEM Outreach Office for their assistance in putting on a fabulous tournament.. For more STEM fun on the NIU campus, be sure to check out their summer camps and STEMfest in the fall. http://www.niu.edu/stem/
