Looking for custom Destination Imagination Pins?
Trading pin time has come once again for Destination Imagination’s Global Finals, an event that marks the culmination of all the hard work of the many young people who participate in the programs that Destination ImagiNation has to offer. A non profit organization, D.I. is dedicated to enriching the global community by providing opportunities for learners of all ages to explore and discover unlimited creative potential through teamwork, cooperation and problem solving. Every year, D.I works with over 100,000 students across the U.S. and in more than 30 countries. Destination ImagiNation’s core program, is an exhilarating after-school activity in which students work in teams to solve mind-bending challenges and present their solutions at Tournaments and Global Finals.
The Monterey Company is proud to provide custom destination imagination trading pins for all the creative teams who participate in these programs. Recently, one of our sales associated shared, These are some of our favorite customers. They are always so creative with their design ideas. It is always so much fun to collaborate with them on their projects. The Monterey Company will custom design and supply trading pins to many of the 1,200 students participating in the Global Finals which begin at the end of May.
Groups coming from all over the world, design their lapel pins and have them made specifically for Global
Finals. The pins are used for trading and identifying each team member. Groups coming to the Global Finals compete in a variety of different themed competitions. There are five competitive team challenges, each with its own educational focus, including technical/mechanical, theater arts/science, fine arts, and improvisation, structural & architectural design.
The pins reflect the team identity, the challenge theme in which they are competing and the year of the competition. As you can see the variety is wonderful to look at, and although our design team facilitated in the creation of these custom pins, the participants came to us with the majority of the idea and art work.
It’s pretty exciting for us, said Paul Stark. Our Destination ImagiNation customers always have the most creative ideas for their pins. It is really fun to work with them. We are also impressed with the effectiveness of this program to motivate and inspire young people. We are excited to be part of that experience, at least peripherally. The pins serve as a nice memento, he added.
