Congratulations Team New Hampshire!

You are about to embark on a very exciting voyage! You have earned the honor of representing the State of New Hampshire, and all of the other NH-DI participants, at Destination Imagination Global Finals in Kansas City, Missouri. We are very proud of your achievement, and we look forward to congratulating you in person at our annual Spoil Your Dinner Party on Friday, May 10th at Bedford High School.

Ice cream at NH-DI’s annual Spoil Your Dinner celebration for Team NH


Along with this honor comes a great responsibility. Your team will represent the State of New Hampshire at Global Finals, and is part of a brand new and much larger team that we call Team New Hampshire. We expect you to conduct yourselves with the same courtesy and enthusiasm that you displayed here in New Hampshire. Whether are in your hotel or participating in the competition, good sportsmanship, good humor, and good manners are the rule.

You will be expected to attend the Welcome Ceremony and the Closing Celebration. Please wear your official Team NH T-shirts to these events, and any other time you can! NH-DI will provide some flashy light-up accessories for your team.

New Hampshire’s Global Finals Teams also have a well-deserved reputation for attending as many NH performances as possible, and cheering wildly! It’s always gratifying to have a boisterous and encouraging audience, especially when you are many miles from home! We know that Team NH will attend Global Finals as a supportive and caring unit.

Going to Globals Meeting

Here is the recording of the Going to Globals meeting held on April 9th:

We also have a copy of the slides from that meeting.

Team Manager Responsibilities

There are a few things that will require your immediate attention:

  • Respond to your DI Global Finals email invitation! If you accept, you will then complete an online registration.
  • Complete our Media Information Form, so we can respond to requests for information about your team from media representatives.
  • Plan to come to our annual Spoil Your Dinner party in May.
  • The NH-DI Prop Truck is by far the easiest way to get your team’s props to Kansas City, but you’ll need to reserve a spot on the truck.
  • Place your order for your team’s FREE Team NH T-shirts, and for any additional shirts that you might like to purchase for your team and their supporters.
  • Pin trading is an important part of any trip to Global Finals. You will want to order the pins your team will want for trading with other teams at Global Finals.

Again, congratulations to your team! We look forward to seeing everyone at Spoil Your Dinner, and then traveling with all of you to Global Finals. If you have any questions, please call us! Please read all of the information that is available on the Global Finals website, and make sure you respond to your email invitation quickly!

Spoil Your Dinner

Photos of this event

All Globals-bound NH teams are invited to our annual Spoil Your Dinner party at 5:45 PM on Friday, May 10th at Bedford High School / Lurgio Middle School (we’re using both cafeterias). This is your opportunity to find out everything you’ll need to know about life at Global Finals. We’ll have lots of ice cream, along with valuable information sessions for team members, parents, and Team Managers. Learn what it’s like from experienced team members and Team Managers who have been to Globals!

Please plan to bring a gallon of ice cream, a fun topping, and a can of whipped cream for everyone to share!

Media Information

Advancing to Global Finals is big news! By the time you return home from the State Tournament, it’s possible that we will have already received requests for information from media representatives who saw your team listed on our tournament results page. This is why we would like you to complete our Media Information Form right away. Please don’t put this off as media calls start right after the state meet.

If your community doesn’t know that your team is Going to Global Finals, they won’t realize that there is a financial need. You’ll want to generate publicity for your team! Newspapers may want to get a photo of your team, and for this, you can direct them to the media-ready photos of Team NH that we’ll post on our website.


All representatives of Team NH must wear their Team NH T-shirt to both the Welcome Ceremony and the Closing Celebration. NH-DI will provide one free T-shirt for each team member and Team Manager, although you are welcome to order extras!

Your Team Manager will receive an email from NH-DI with a coupon code for your free T-shirts. Your team’s shirt orders and the coupon code MUST be included in a single order from our NH-DI Online Store.

Once you have added all of your free T-shirts to your shopping cart, along with any additional paid items that you would like to include in the same order, go to checkout and click on the button to indicate that you would like to enter a coupon code. Enter your coupon code into the coupon field. This will deduct the cost of the shirts for the team members and managers from the total.

The coupon will only be valid for 2024 Global Finals Team T-Shirts, and for a single use. This is why all of your free T-shirts must be included in the same order.

At the time of checkout, you may choose to have your order shipped for a fee, or you may elect to pick it up at Spoil Your Dinner.

Family members traveling to Globals may also want to wear a team supporter T-shirt! Everyone is welcome to shop independently for pins, support crew shirts, and extra team shirts for an extra charge. These can either be included with the order for your free shirts, or you can order them separately.

Pins, Pins, Pins!

One of the most popular activities at Global Finals is trading pins with teams from around the world.

Your team could go through a LOT of pins! Pin trading is an important part of the Global Finals experience, and you won’t want any of your team members to feel left out. Every year, some of our teams run out of pins shortly after they arrive, but by that time our affiliate’s most popular pins are often sold out.

Based on early feedback we’ve received from volunteers from other affiliates, we think this year’s NH pins will be one of the most popular pins at Global Finals. To get these pins for your team to trade, you’ll need to order this year’s pins from NH-DI’s Online Store.

NH-DI Prop Truck

Our prop truck is by far the easiest way to transport your team’s props to Global Finals! It’s only $450, unless your team has an unusually large volume of props. You’ll just need to deliver your well-packaged and properly labeled props to our shipping company, and they’ll take it from there!

To reserve a space, you must register by Wednesday, April 24th. For details, please visit the Prop Truck product page at our online store and our Prop Packing and Shipping page.
