Maharishi School is sending eight teams to the Global Finals of Destination ImagiNation at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN, from 23-26 May, 2007.

This is a record for Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment and for any school in the world. This year the teams will be meeting with competitors from 45 states and 12 countries.

Maharishi School teams have previously won 46 state championships in the creative problem-solving competitions Destination ImagiNation and Odyssey of the Mind. They have also been three-time winners of the Global Finals of Destination ImagiNation, with more top-ten finishes than any other school in the world.

This is a unique demonstration of the creativity, intelligence, and concrete results of Maharishi's Consciousness-Based Education.

Destination ImagiNation Global Finals is the largest creativity competition of its kind held anywhere, and is a culmination of the creativity competition year. It brings team winners representing their state, their province, or their country to compete together at the annual international creative problem-solving tournament held at the University of Tennessee.

This popular process-based programme helps young people build lifelong skills in creative and critical thinking, teamwork, time management, and problem solving. Up to seven participants work together as a team for eight to twelve weeks to create their unique solution to a 'Team Challenge', which can have a focus that is theatrical, structural, improvisational, scientific or technical, or a blend of several disciplines.

Teams also learn and practise creative quick-thinking skills for the 'Instant Challenge' portion of the programme. All challenges must be strictly team-solved, self-reliant, with no outside help.

Global Good News wishes all the teams from Maharishi School continuing success and all good fortune in this year's Global Finals.
