What There are six new competitive Challenges to choose from each year. Each of the Challenges is developed by a team of educators and industry experts who target a particular area of the curriculum and its related standards of content and performance. The areas of focus include: Technical, Scientific, Structural, Fine Arts, Improvisational and Service Learning. There is also a non-competitive Early Learning Challenge that allows participants to develop social and problem solving skills.

When Are you ready to explore, collaborate, and create together? Make a plan today to launch that creative journey for the young people in your life. Students from kindergarten through university level participate in the Destination Imagination Challenge Program. The DI Challenge season aligns with the Northern Hemisphere academic year. Most teams start between August and October, in the mean time please join us for a free online informational sessions!

Where The teams’ solutions are assessed at regional, state or national tournaments. While most schools run DI as an after school program, some school districts incorporate the program into their electives curriculum. Our tournaments provide the opportunity for participants to celebrate creativity with their peers and promote healthy competition. Every year, local volunteers help run 200 tournaments around the world.

Why Teams in our program learn higher order thinking and improve in creative thinking, critical thinking and collaborative problem solving. Our participants learn and experience the creative process, develop new friendships and learn to work together.

Find a Team Manager

The Team Manager is an adult volunteer (often a parent or teacher) who guides the team through their creative journey – like a troop leader or a coach. DI provides training and resources to set Team Managers up for success! DI Team Managers must be at least 18 years old and complete a background check in correspondence with our Youth Protection Policy. If you know who your Team Manager will be, they can start their background check anytime so they are ready to go on August 1!
