Destination Imagination Challenges teach the Creative Process: from Imagination to Innovation. This upcoming year’s Challenges are no exception. From extreme environments and high-volume excavation to professional pandemonium and comic creations, you’ll be sure to break the tension with some helpful play and find a Challenge that meets your team’s unique style of creativity!

Stepping off of the plane into the blustery wind of Korea, I couldn’t help but smile. Prior to working at Destination Imagination, I was an English teacher in a small farming community in Korea for about a year. The country and culture hold a special place in my heart: the smells, the sounds, the food and the people are all a welcomed reminder of my first time living abroad and the impact it had on my life.

I’m feeling a tad bit nostalgic. I heard a song play on the radio the other day while I was driving home, and it took me right back to when I was in elementary school and I got The Hooters record as a birthday present.
