Congratulations to Elena Waters, and Nina and Natalie Zargari as they head to globals in Knoxville, Tenn., for Destination Imagination.

They won first place at regionals and first in Columbus for states. They also won a renaissance award for creativity and teamwork.

The girls are now considered best in Ohio. They will travel to globals where they will compete with kids from all over the U.S. and from several different countries such as Korea, China and Canada.

This is a great honor, a once in a lifetime opportunity.
