This summer, our Global Finals competition went entirely virtual due to Covid-19. Not only did it put our staff’s and volunteers’ quick, creative problem-solving skills to the test, but also that of elementary through high school students across the world. More than 600 teams from 15 countries participated in Global Finals 2020: Summer of Creativity, and we received 2,200 submissions across our Virtual Team Challenge, Instant Challenge, and Team Challenge Showcase categories.
Our Virtual Team Challenge, Distance Makes the Art Grow Stronger, was designed specifically for Global Finals 2020 and students had just six weeks to solve it with their team members. Teams were tasked with creating and performing a story about characters who work together to reach a goal. They also had to create and incorporate a work of art into their performance and use at least one video conferencing platform to perform their story.
The creativity and innovation displayed by our teams was nothing short of extraordinary and we invite and encourage you to watch some of the winning solutions for our Global Finals 2020 Virtual Team Challenge.
Thank you to our teams, Team Managers, parents, volunteers, Affiliates, and sponsors for not only making Global Finals 2020 a possibility, but also one of the most special, groundbreaking events in our organization’s 21-year history.
