    2018-2019 Challenge Previews are available....click this link for more information or here to the Sneak Preview Videos from on the DI YouTube Channel.

    General Program Information:

    For the 2018-2019 school year, the DI Program will be available on all campuses for students in grades 3-12* (Parmley, Hardy, Cannan, Turner, and Meador, Lucas, Brabham and Willis High School). Availability and number of teams per campus is based on volunteer teacher sponsorship as team manager and team size is limited by the Destination Imagination organization to a max of 7 students.

    Teams meet one to two days per week immediately after dismissal with a teacher and/or parent as a volunteer group facilitator to work on both team building activities, team instant challenges, Improv theater, and research/practice for competitions.

    We welcome parent mentors or co-team managers, so if you have a passion for engineering, construction, theater, art, sewing, construction, power tool use, or any special skill and would like to help, please let me know ASAP.

    For more information on DI, please see the links below.

    * The inclusion of 3rd grade students this year is on a pilot basis on some campuses and is up to the team manager. All interested 3rd grade students are encouraged to apply.
