Participants in
Destination Imagination ®



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


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.

the people that make things happen in REGION 1


The most important people in DI. Get Started Today!


Our team managers provide an environment that encourages team work and creativity.


Our appraisers train to learn the Challenges and are a vital part of our tournament.


Our volunteers help with so many tasks on tournament day.


Challenge Masters are special folks. It’s their responsibility to see that each challenge at the Regional Tournament runs correctly with a fully trained set of Appraisers.

Board Members

Board members represent the membership and are a vital part of Region1. We ask that each District or School membership have an active member on the board.


The Executive Board is the elected board responsible for the affairs of the region. The Regional Director and Assistant Director represent our region in state affiliate meetings.
