    How to get started?

  • Form a Team

    Destination Imagination is entirely team based. Student teams must have between 2 and 7 members, and students in grades K-12 and University can all participate!

    The first step is to designate a Team Manager: someone who is 18 or older and has agreed to volunteer their time to organize, supervise, and mentor a team of students. To officially form a MADI team, a Team Manager must complete the following steps:

    Step 4: Register for MADI Tournament

    If your team wants to compete in MaDI tournaments you will receive information about these opportunities and registration deadlines via email.

  • Once we register our team, then what?

    This is when it gets fun!! Teams typically meet at least once a week for 1 1/2 - 2 hours to tackle the team Challenge of their choice, practice Instant Challenges, and prepare props, sets, costumes, scripts and anything else they feel they need to do to meet the Challenge requirements. The Challenges themselves will answer a lot of your questions and guide your team! It is critical to read the Challenge your team choose over and over again!

  • Materials From DIHQ

    Once you have purchased your Team Number you will have access to the following materials to download through the dashboard.  These items are critical to your team's success!


    Team Challenges

    There are a total of seven team challenges, each with a different focus including: Technical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Improv, Engineering, Service Learning and for K-2 students Early Learning
