Special Awards

The DaVinci Award for Outstanding Creativity

This award is given for having a unique approach to a solution, for risk taking, and/or for outstanding creativity (not skill or talent).



Monadnock Regional HS


Instant Challenge

Secondary Level

It’s not often that an Instant Challenge performance wins an award.  And even less often when it’s a DaVinci.  This secondary team wowed their instant challenge appraisers with a “multi”-dimensional solution to their challenge.  The unique interaction between three dimensional team members and two dimensional props was astounding.  This team produced a fully developed improvisational sketch that brought a unique perspective to the challenge and made for a truly memorable performance.


Interlakes HS


Coming Attractions

Secondary Level

All in black and white and wonderfully evocative of the silent movie era, this cohesive performance simply and elegantly hinted at this film of unrequited love



Renaissance Award for Outstanding Design, Engineering, Execution, Performance





This team used materials provided to elevate the solution beyond the scope of the written challenge. They not only solved the problem in a way no other group considered, but they added verbal wit and knowledge to bring style to their solution.



Coming Attractions


This team effectively incorporated elegant simplicity in the construction of a beautiful scenic framework which allowed us to believe we were watching a real movie trailer that transported us to ancient Greece.  This was a smooth and well crafted performance.


CooperativeMiddle School


Coming Attractions


Out of the chaos of action, visual complexity, and sound this team created a masterpiece of tension and excitement evoking the essence of a modern action thriller.




Coming Attractions


A wooden, effectively lighted Eiffel Tower, made to scale, was only part of what wowed the appraisers.  Their cinematic effect simulating a burning house using electrical wizardry was truly impressive.


DoverMiddle School


Hold It!


The research and preparation that went into the performance was evident in the seamless integration of authentic looking period props and costumes.  We learned a lot about flight from their well researched skit that made a memorable and delightful performance


CooperativeMiddle School


Assembly Required


The appraisal team was dazzled with the complex mechanized solution delivered by this team.  From a complex, remote-controlled revolving parts organizer to a product organizer that picked up multiple products, this team’s engineering was truly outstanding.  It was clear to the appraisers that the team iteratively refined their solution, employing setup templates and teamwork to leave little room for error.


Hollis DI


Solar Stage


The team wowed the appraisers with a clearly presented and engaging story line that was well integrated with realistic and attractive scenery.  Their performance included a satellite enhanced by a realistic solar system.  The concept and execution of the multipurpose revolving backdrop and storage unit were models of simplicity and creative problem solving.




The World Canvas


The audience and appraisers were wowed while being taught about the importance and value of recycling through witty commentary, song, and dance. Scenery and props were all made of diverse recycled material, going as far as reusing cardboard from past DI performances.  Their passion and energy for their community shone through their flawless performance and wonderful storyline.

MonadnockMiddle School


The World Canvas


 This memorable performance began with a team created poem from a dog’s point of view.  A beautiful and well crafted dog house was rich with metaphor.  A food pantry and a realistically tiled roof added to the overall effect.  The needs of the dogs were represented on a well-crafted wishing tree which will remain in the Humane Society.

This team left us absolutely paw-struck!

Spirit of Discovery and ImagiNation Award

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


Random Adolescents


The World Canvas


This team was DI personified!  They took the core skills of DI and reached outside their community to spread the message of self acceptance and confidence.  They created a model to teach girls about what they have to offer the world and.  Their hard work has shown amazing results.  It makes us proud to see this team  spread this message in the world.  This team screams “I AM DI”
