Our organization was founded in 1999. Since then, our non-profit has impacted more than a million participants. Approximately 125,000 youth make friends and learn the creative process through our programs every year and 38,000 volunteers support us!
Arkansas Destination Imagination, Inc. was incorporated in January 2001 as non-profit licensee of Destination Imagination, Inc. As of 2019, Arkansas DI reaches 700+ students and boasts 250+ volunteers.
All of our programs are Challenge-based, and they teach the creative process from imagination to innovation. Our goal is to help student teams learn to be creative in every aspect of their lives.
Our Challenge program is our most popular offering. At the start of the season, teams choose one of seven Challenges. After weeks spent creating, developing and practicing their solutions, they go to a local tournament. Top-scoring teams advance to state or country tournaments. The top level of the tournament is our Global Finals-the world’s largest celebration of creativity.
Our programs are developed annually to ensure they are relevant and align to National Education Standards, STEM standards, ELA Common Core Standards and Mathematics Common Core Standards. Every year, with the help of parent volunteers, educators, and subject matter experts, we design new and exciting Challenges for student teams to solve.
