Destination Imagination is an educational program where student teams solve open-ended Challenges and present their solutions at tournaments. Up to 7 members can be on a team, and students from kindergarten through university participate. In working to solve our Challenges, our teams learn important life skills like time management, collaboration, conflict resolution, and creative and critical thinking.

Our community and school-based youth program begins in early fall when the year’s Challenges are issued. Teams of up to seven students organize, choose their challenge and work for months honing their solution. Volunteer team managers (parents, teachers or community volunteers) facilitate the group, but cannot give technical or other assistance. Teams present their solutions at local, regional and state tournaments, which narrow the field to about 15 teams from each state or international affiliate. These teams compete in the ultimate creativity showdown, Global Finals, each May.
