More than 1000 teams of elementary and middle-school-aged children from around the world gathered Knoxville, TN in May and worked together to construct more than 100 cubes and a gigantic puzzle cube in a problem-solving challenge. Avery Graphics played a role in the challenge by donating more than 7000 sq ft of its MPI 2010 vinyl to the event, titled the 2008 Destination Imagination Global Finals. The event is the world’s largest creative-problem-solving program for children.

Graphix Solutions, Old Bridge, NJ, printed graphics on Avery’s donated vinyl and wrapped 125 individual cubes used in the Power Cube Challenge. During the challenge, teams of children assembled a 15 x 15-ft puzzle cube for the event’s National Dairy Council Nutrition and Fitness Challenge.

“We were pleased to provide MPI 2010 vinyl to this year’s Power Cube Challenge at Destination Imagination,” says Joel Ross, marketing manager for Avery Dennison Graphics and Reflective Products Division. “This conference is a valuable opportunity for children to develop their leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities. The gigantic puzzle cube is quite an impressive example of what today’s young, creative minds can accomplish.”
