20140509SYD4516In the fall, 300 New Hampshire Destination Imagination teams started working to outscore each other in creative thinking and problem solving competitions. After State Finals, only 40 teams were left to advance to Global Finals and compete with teams from 16 countries and nearly every state and Canadian province. Since then, these teams have feverishly been fundraising for the once-in-a-lifetime trip. Friday night in Nashua, these teams came from all over the state to meet each other, learn what they can expect at the world’s largest competition of its kind, and most important, become Team New Hampshire.

While parents and the Team Managers learned the importance of pin trading and the details of getting around a venue so large that it takes the University of Tennessee campus and two complete convention centers, the team members learned from alumni and other team members about safety, competition and the friends they will make from all over the world.

Opening and closing ceremony, and other key events will be streamed – some live – on DITV at www.GlobalFinals.org. Our web site will be updated with Team New Hampshire information.
