Here are the 2022-2023 Challenge summaries for the Destination Imagination program year 2022-2023.
Destination Imagination Challenges are the prompts or guidelines for what a team creates. Our Challenges are open-ended, allowing teams to express themselves creatively and take full ownership of their solutions. Challenges are designed to teach the creative process—a system of learning that is at the root of innovation and a child’s ability to bring an idea to life.
Each team selects one new and engaging Team Challenge requiring a solution that will be presented at the tournament. Team Challenges encourage students to explore their passions, discover their unique talents and abilities, and learn new skills. Team Challenges are available each year in the following categories: Technical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Improvisational, Engineering, Service Learning, and Early Learning. Although each Team Challenge has a specific educational focus, they each also incorporate elements to make them truly multi-disciplinary and cross-curricular (i.e., the Fine Arts Challenge will have a technical element and the Engineering Challenge will have an artistic or storytelling component.)
New Hampshire Destination Imagination (NH-DI) is run by the New Hampshire Innovation and Creativity Connection (NHICC), a New Hampshire-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is dedicated to these goals. NH-DI, in most years, engages over 1,800 students from over 100 schools and community groups in academic competition.
Teams start in the fall. Teams compete in March and April to try and advance to Destination Imagination Global Finals in May, 2023.
