Flash Bash 2015

The entries were many and varied as area photographers exhibited their photos showing the "Places, Faces and Moments in Time that told their Sunapee Story". The exhibition by professional, amateur and student photographers was visited by over 300 people in admiration of the talent on display and many murmurs of intentions to enter the show in 2016.

Thanks to all the participants and congratulations to the winners!

To see the award winning photographs as chosen by the judges and the People's Choice winners by vote of show visitors, chick this link.

Congratulations to the Sunapee Elementary School's award winning
DI Team ~ "The Story Collectors" !

Who .. What .. and Why DI?

The Students tell it best: "We are a Destination Imagination team called: "The Story Collectors".
Our goal is to collect stories and preserve history. We want to make a book and a website all about your stories! We will do this by interviewing you and then writing your story.
Destination Imagination (DI, for short) is a global program where kids can be creative and the adults just sit back and watch. It is very good for our young minds."

This year's DI Team won the NH State Championship and went on to the Global competition in Tennessee, placing an awesome 7th out of nearly 100 teams from around the world, duplicating a feat by Sunapee's 2014 DI Team. Good job! A great tradition established.

To learn more about the 2015 DI Team, see their photos and tell them your story check out their website at: the story / or email:

Project Sunapee is proud to have played a small part in their story.
