Adam Smith, Hotchkiss High School

Here is some special information about my experience in DI!

Information about how long I’ve been in DI, the roles I’ve had in DI, the regions I’ve been connected to, etc.:

My “Home Region” = Western Slope

I started DI in third grade and participated for 2 years as a team member. I worked on the fine arts and engineering challenges. After that, I started helping DI as a scoring room runner and then a Time Keeper/Announcer. I have helped set up the engineering challenge on the Western slope every year. I have also helped at state every year as a score runner and as a TKA.

Special memories, experiences, etc. related to my time in DI:

At a young age, DI was the only program to offer STEM competitions at my school. This program was a crucial factor in how I developed my problem-solving skills I have today as well as my ability to work as a team. DI also gave me the opportunity to meet one of my closest friends. Without DI I would have never seen how creative and goofy people can really get. GO DI!!!

Here are some photos I wanted to share with you about my experience in DI. I hope you enjoy them!
