Virtual Pin Trading: Pin Pals Program
No Destination Imagination tournament experience would feel complete without pin trading. You get to see so many different and creative designs, showcase your own, and even make a new friend or two.
For Global Finals 2021, we’re bringing the pin trading magic to you through our Pin Pals Program. Not only will you get to trade pins, but you can make life-long “pin pals” with teams from all around the world!
How Pin Pals Works:
Each team that participates in our Pin Pals Program will be matched with one other team to exchange pins through mail. Every effort will be made to match Pin Pals from different states or countries, but this is subject to participation.
Teams should exchange one pin per team member on their Pin Pals team so that everyone has a pin. For example, if your Pin Pals team has 5 team members, you should send 5 pins (one per team member). We will make every effort to match teams that are in the same Challenge level and have the same number of team members, but this is also subject to participation. Pin trades beyond a single person per pin will be made at your own risk.
All Pin Pal trades must be made through the team’s Team Manager to ensure students’ safety.
Team Managers will receive their Pin Pals information on June 22. Pin Pals should mail their pins no later than July 22, 2021.
Registration for the Pin Pals Program will be open from May 18–June 7. This program is limited to Global Finals teams.
