Access to the full Destination Imagination Team Challenges will be made available on September 1, 2017.
Each season takes place during the school year, culminating with Global Finals in May. Depending on the Challenge, teams typically spend two to four months developing and practicing their Challenge solutions.
The final program cost depends on location and whether the teams compete in academic competitions. Destination Imagination charges a global team registration fee, which comes with a Team Number, program materials and access to DI University for online training. A typical registration fee is $105-$125 for one team. Registration fees vary depending on the type of program materials (digital or printed) a team chooses. DI is a volunteer-led organization and licenses the distribution of the challenge program to state and country volunteer organizations called Affiliates. Licensed Affiliates also charge a state or country fee for volunteer training and academic competitions. This fee varies by location and may be collected separately.

Teams can be formed through schools, clubs or on their own. Teams can be made up of 2-7 members and must have an adult Team Manager (often a teacher or parent).
Teams have the opportunity to showcase their solutions at local tournaments, many of which take place between February and April. When a team qualifies at the state level, they are invited to compete at Global Finals—the world’s largest celebration of student creativity.
