At Destination Imagination, we rely on a strong network of sponsors to help us continue our mission to teach the creative process to students in a variety of subjects, including STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), the arts and service learning. The success of our program and Global Finals event each year has been due in part to a history of great sponsors and partners.
Paul Hansen, Marketing Director for 3M (our strategic sponsor), discusses why Destination Imagination and 3M have a perfect marriage of values, including creativity and innovation.
