The Lynnfield Middle School’s Destination Imagination Team has received an award from the Massachusetts Advocates for Children for the team’s work to raise awareness and educate the middle school community about Down syndrome. The team is six 13-year-olds now in eighth grade: Christina Albano, Jacqueline Desautels, Maggie Weaver, Zachary Rothwell, Dominick Gravante, and Andrew Maglio. The team received the John Mudd Organizational Award for youth advocacy during the Through the Eyes of a Child annual celebration held in Boston on Oct. 17. According to information from the Massachusetts Advocates for Children, the Destination Imagination Program is “designed to develop opportunities that inspire the global community of learners to utilize diverse approaches in applying 21st-century skills and creativity.” For its awareness campaign, the team recruited knowledgeable parents and the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, as well as school administrators.
