Destination Imagination is an international creative problem solving program that meets educational standards in Literature, Reading and Writing, Geography, History, Math and Science.  It is an exciting way for team members to:
ö Explore and discover their creative potentials through teamwork, cooperation and mutual respect.
ö Develop sophisticated creative problem-solving skills.
ö Take ownership and pride in what they accomplish because they do everything themselves, from beginning to end.
ö Present their Challenge solution in a competition setting.





Destination Imagination is a volunteer-driven organization. This includes the 100+ Appraisers needed to run each tournament. This year, Destination Imagination Colorado is again asking EVERY team registered for a tournament to supply one adult (18 or older) to train as an Appraiser and volunteer at one tournament this spring. The possibilities are endless: parents, teachers, friends, business associates, etc. Your volunteer will be allowed to appraise at any tournament and in fact may prefer to pick a different date than the Denver Tournament so they are able to watch your team. There will be a space on the Denver Tournament registration for each team to provide the name and contact information for their volunteer.
