  3. IDODI – use your skills and creativity to share with us how your participation in Destination Imagination will help you to achieve your future goals.  The theme is “I DO DI.”  The format is up to you – it can be an essay, pictorial representation, video, art project, puzzle, etc.   This is not your standard college or scholarship application. The move creative the better. The only requirement is that it must fit within a 10” x 12” x 6” (or smaller) box.  Further requirements, as applicable, are that it may not exceed 1 page or 5 minutes in length.  Use your creativity!!  All submissions remain the property of DI Colorado and may be used to market Destination Imagination. Creative projects and videos tend to score higher than essays.
  4. One letter of recommendation from your Team Manager, DI School Coordinator, or DI Official
  5. One letter of recommendation from a school official
    1. The completed application should be mailed to:
