Competition for Destination Imagination consists of one main challenge followed by an instant challenge. Each team can choose among six challenges to compete in.


The Improvisational Challenge is all about spontaneity and storytelling. Teams receive topics and produce skits right on the spot.

Fine Arts

In the Fine Arts challenge, students flex their acting, research and artistic muscles as they create together.

Service Learning

The Service Learning challenge is designed to engage students in public service to address real-life community issues.


Our Scientific Challenge blends the research and curiosity of science with the thrill and creativity of the theater arts.


Our Engineering Challenge asks teams to design, build and test load-bearing structures out of specific materials.


The Technical challenge prompts students to complete tasks by using engineering, research, strategic planning, and related skills.


DI teams have the opportunity to compete in three levels of competition. Teams must place in the previous competition to qualify for the next.

Compete with other teams in the LA area. All teams are qualified for entry in February. Traditionally, AHS has hosted the competition.
