Destination Imagination & Rising Stars

Creativity has the power to change the world.
Becoming part of a team is a life-changing experience.
Our world’s future depends on extraordinary problem solvers.

4 of our teams have been successful enough to compete at the Global Finals over the past 2 years.


Children in Pre-K through 1st Grade may join the SJRS Rising Stars Team.

Students in 2nd – 8th grade can start a team using the checklist below.    
-Talk to your friends about making a DI team.
-Talk to your parents and ask for permission to make/join a DI team *
-Find a DI Team Challenge you want to solve (on the back of this sheet).
-Find 2 adults willing to be your Team Managers (that’s DI for “coach”).
-Turn in your signed DI permission slip
-Start meeting! Your team picks how often you meet, where, and what you do. 
-Adults AREN’T ALLOWED to tell you how to solve your Team Challenge!
-After months of preparation, your team will present your Team Challenge solution at the regional meet, at Monadnock Regional High School.

Destination ImagiNation is a program in which student teams solve open-ended DI Team Challenges and present their solutions at Tournaments.
DI features teams of up to 7 participants each. Our participants range in age from kindergarteners through university-level students, with an adult Team Manager helping along the way.
Teams practice wherever they can find space, so they practice in living rooms, garages, classrooms and similar locations.
