Rosemount Middle School's two Destination ImagiNation teams had successful outings at Saturday's state tournament, held at Champlin Park High School.

The DI Know Youz?? team, which organized a carnival in March to raise money for cancer patients at St. Paul Children's Hospital, received an Outstanding rating and qualified for the global finals May 25-29 in Knoxville, Tenn.

The DI Know Youz?? are made up of sixth graders Dana Thibodo, Kasey Zacharias, Anna Wise, Elizabeth Johnson, Megan McKenzie, Katie Turner and Anna Peterson.

The Magic M&Ms received an Excellent rating on their presentation, which included efforts to raise awareness about autism and collect money to buy equipment for the school's special education program.

The Magic M&Ms are sixth graders Grace Tinsley, Marissa Owens, Jamie Preator, Mariah Flohr and Ayla Pavelka.

Both teams competed in a category that charges students with putting on an event and promoting it with social media such as Facebook, Twitter and blogs.
