About Global Finals 2019

Global Finals is the culminating event of every Destination Imagination (DI) season. In DI, students work together in teams to create a solution to one of six competitive Challenges—Technical, Scientific, Fine Arts, Improvisational, Engineering and Service Learning. View the 2018-19 Challenge Previews at DestinationImagination.org.

Teams showcase their solutions at local tournaments. DI teams that advance past Affiliate (state/country) Tournaments are invited to showcase their solutions at Global Finals. The scheduled festivities include the Destination Imagination Tournament, pin trading, a costume ball, a prop design showcase, international events and more.
