WELCOME!

WE DO DI

Region 1 is located in Northeast Ohio and is comprised of Ashtabula, Trumbull and Mahoning Counties.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE!

Ohio DI is announcing an important new policy that will impact all Team Managers, Assistant Team Managers, and Regional Challenge Masters for the 2019-2020 DI season.  As required by Destination Imagination’s Rules of the Road, III.D.7 (page 8), all adults (18 years of age and older) serving in these roles must submit to an approved background check.  This change, part of DI’s Youth Protection Policy, will help ensure that our program continues to be a safe and positive experience for all of our student participants.  

Please see the OKC website for more details.
