Destination Imagination is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization that helps kids around the world discover their creativity. This organization creates programs that teach the creative process in which students can solve problems in astonishing ways. It builds lifelong confidence in working with others in solving challenges.
The Challenge program is the most popular among students and consists of choosing one of seven challenges at the beginning of the season. After weeks of creating and developing solutions, students go to a local tournament. The top-scoring teams advance to state or country tournaments. The top-level teams of the tournament go to Global Finals which is the world’s largest celebration of creativity.
