KNOXVILLE, TN – Delano’s own Sugar Packets Destination Imagination team recently brought home the hardware from global finals.

The Sugar Packets won second place in the high-school level technical challenge and the DaVinci Award at the competition hosted May 24-27 in Knoxville, TN.

Named after Leonardo DaVinci, the DaVinci Award honors teams that demonstrate the adventurous risk in their solution. During the closing ceremony, the Sugar Packets were recognized for “outstanding workmanship and sophisticated switching mechanism in a well-engineered carousel.” They were also recognized for “wowing the appraisers for using circuit design, engineering, and advanced programming skills to create an impressive vanishing act.”

The Destination Imagination Global Finals is considered the world’s largest “celebration of creativity.” It drew 1,470 teams from 17 countries, including Australia, China, Canada, and Mexico. More than 17,000 people gathered for closing ceremonies to award the top teams in the world for their work in solving a series of challenges related to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math).

The Sugar Packets team is made up of Alexandria and Annabel Frake, Natalie and Nicole Pupp, and Brock and Gretchen Wuerger. The team is managed by Ben and Kristina Pupp and Brian Frake.

Prior to global competition, the team had taken first place in regional and statewide competition.
