Lebanon High School

This team made going to China so real, visually appealing, and rich in culture, that we should have brought our passports. This team effortlessly and seamlessly showed continuous problem-solving, brainstorming, and refinement of their performance. They gave a skilled and visually captivating performance, well above expectations. The team had created a different dance piece for the culture of each country they researched.

Conant High School
Team: 130-47000
Challenge: Spinning a Tale

Imagine you are in a beautiful butterfly garden, and it is not until you look closely that you realize that your surroundings have been hand-crafted from discarded bottles and wrapping paper! This team made an amazing and detailed set that was well integrated into their story, and made creative use of recycled materials. From a distance, the materials looked exactly like what they should represent. The craftsmanship and creativity of the team was impressive!

Spirit of Discovery and ImagiNation Award (Spirit of DI)

This award is given in recognition of those who act as superior role models in the areas of spirit, sportsmanship and volunteerism.

Cake Walk Team

It’s not every day you see an elementary school principal getting down and boogying with the kids, nor a long line of patient and smiling kids & parents waiting to get into an event. But it happened right here in Swanzey as our Cake Walk team pulled off the cakewalk of the year. This Spirit of DI award goes to a team of adults who made winning a cake a special event.

Monadnock Regional High School
Team: 130-46527
Challenge: Verses! Foiled Again!

Can anyone spare some wood? When a competing team realized that they didn’t have all of the supplies needed to rebuild their structure, this team generously shared their own emergency tools and supplies. This award goes to a team that truly exhibited the true Spirit of DI.

Grantham Village School
Team: 130-77376
Challenge: Verses! Foiled Again!

Grace under pressure! First thing this morning, a team member turned around and went home sick. Then the team discovered that they had to make significant adjustments to their structure, at the same time that they were busy devising creative ways to compensate for the missing team member. They remained upbeat, confident, and enthusiastic throughout, exhibiting preparation and dedication that was unusual for a first year DI team.
