The Silicon Valley DI Team-supplied Appraiser Requirement is based on the California Affiliate Appraiser Policy.

All teams participating in California Destination Imagination’s Silicon Valley Regional Tournament must provide at least one Appraiser identified by California DI as passing a Level 2 Verified Volunteers Background Check, and one Official to participate in the Regional Tournament.

The Appraiser will be trained by the Region to meet California DI standards as described in the California Creativity Appraiser Policy posted in the Bylaws & Policies section of the California Destination Imagination website.

SVDI Appraiser Training dates, times and locations will be announced soon.  Appraisers should reserve February 1, 2020 (Part 1) and February 8, 2020 (Part 2) for training. At this point in time, Appraisers should plan to attend both training sessions — Part 1 and Part 2. Experienced Appraisers will have an opportunity to apply for a “Golden Ticket Pass” for the February 1st training. In January, the Appraiser Coordinator will notify experienced Appraisers of how to get the “Golden Ticket Pass.” Regional Officials do not need training prior to the day of the tournament.  The Appraisers FAQs link provides additional information. Appraisers and Tournament Officials should turn in completed and signed Adult Media Release Forms.

All teams that accept the invitation to compete in the Affiliate Finals Tournament must provide one trained and experienced Appraiser and one Official. The team provided Appraiser must be trained and experienced with the Challenges and materials for the current Destination Imagination program year and identified by California DI as passing a Level 2 Verified Volunteers Background Check.

Appraisers meet the trained and experienced requirement for the California Destination Imagination Affiliate Tournament by attending SVDI Appraiser Training and Appraising at the SVDI Regional Tournament on March 7, 2020. No additional training is required prior to the Affiliate Tournament. 

The California Affiliate Tournament is scheduled for April 4, 2020 in Riverside, California.
