WHAT IS Destination Imagination? Destination Imagination (DI) is an international non-profit organization that teaches life skills and expands imaginations through youth-centered, team-based creative problem solving.

WHO MANAGES A TEAM? Parent volunteers are needed for managing a team. The team manager oversees the team and acts as a guide throughout the process. A team cannot be created without parent volunteers!

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO JOIN? K-2 participates in Rising Stars. 3rd-5th participates in Destination Imagination. Only 5-7 members are allowed on a team.

WHAT DOES A TEAM DO? Teams of 5-7 students work together after school during the year to solve their choice of 1 of 5 challenges. The team then presents their solution to their chosen central challenge and also solves an instant challenge at the Digital Regional Tournament.

HOW OFTEN DO TEAMS MEET? Once a team is formed, the members will decide how competitive they want to be and how often they want to meet. Typically, teams meet once a week until January when they then practice two times per week, and possibly more as the Regional Tournament approaches.

Teams will solve a central challenge (long term) and an instant challenge (short term) to be presented at the regional tournament.


Students will learn and use the following skills through the creative problem solving process.

  • Creative & Critical Thinking

  • Team Building

  • Problem Solving

  • Risk Taking

  • Project Management

  • Perseverance

  • Self-Confidence
