Hello and welcome to the Michigan Creativity Association (MICA) Region 5 website. This is where you will find all information pertaining to Region 5.

First of all, welcome to all returning building coordinators, team managers, and team members. Also, welcome to all those new faces I can't wait to meet. My name is Elaine Miller, your Region 5 Director. I have been involved with creative problem-solving programs since 1995. This is my second year being your regional director. I may not be able to answer all questions thrown at me, but I do know where to get all the answers to make this year the best year yet.

This year there will be several training opportunities for Team Managers (TM). MICA will be offering TM trainings in 2 different locations - Waterford Mott on December 2, 2017 and November 18, 2017 in Grand Ledge. You can register for these trainings by clicking the training tab on the main webpage. Valuable information will be provided to assist you in working with your teams during these trainings.

There will also be team workshops on the same day and location at the TM trainings. We require all teams to be accompanied by at least one adult during the entire workshop. This year our workshops will be more focused on Instant Challenges.

Our tournament date is March 4 th 2017 (SUNDAY) at Western High School in Parma, MI. Registration will open November 1 and will close January 15, 2017.

I ask that you keep check the main website periodically for informational update that will assist your team in their planning process.

If you have any questions or concerns you may contact me directly at

Let's get this year started,
Elaine Miller
