Talawanda Destination Imagination Program

Destination Imagination is an innovative creative problem-solving STEAM program for participants from kindergarten through high school.  Teams of 5 to 7 students are challenged to solve one of six unique Team Challenges and an Instant Challenge with no adult assistance. Teams pick one of six challenges providing an opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, fine arts, improv, and service. The season culminates with each team presenting at a tournament in the spring. Grades 3-12 compete against other area teams to qualify for competition at the Ohio state tournament.


Our regional tournament will be held on Saturday, March 16th, at Springboro schools. Teams forming will require a parent or other adult that is willing to volunteer their time to be a team manager.  Free Manager/Coach training sessions are available in the fall.


It is time to begin forming and registering teams for this year. Please contact me in the near future if you are interested in helping to manage a Destination Imagination team this year. Without managers, we cannot have teams.  We will be hosting an informational meeting about Destination Imagination on Wednesday, September 19th, from 6:30-7:30pm in the upstairs meeting room at the Oxford Lane Public Library located at 441 S. Locust Street. All are welcome to attend. Information will explain the program, how teams are formed, and how to become a team manager.  Sign ups will also be available for children interested in participating. Sign Up Form

Paws for a Cause Miami!


Miami is having an event again this year called 'Hike-a-Thon' at Miami Natural Trails. It is on Saturday, September 29th from 9:00-2:00. As an organization we are currently in the midst of fundraising to get a service dog park on campus. At Hike-a-Thon we have the opportunity to get some of our fundraising money matched, but only if we walk 2,000 miles on that day!


It's a great event for everyone and there are a few local booths plus different hiking trail opportunities. We will also have the dogs there at various points throughout the day!
