2021-22 Odyssey of the Mind

It's that time of year!  Time to start organizing Odyssey of the Mind teams and matching them up with a coach.  Odyssey of the Mind is a creative competition made up of a coach and up to 7 students (team members).  Team members can range in age from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  A team can be a mixture of ages or it can be comprised of 7 students the same age/grade.  All schools who partake in Odyssey of the Mind receive the same problems to choose from.  Team members will compete against teams their own age/grade.  Odyssey of the Mind is a hands on for kids and hands off for adults program.  Team members will do the planning, script writing, creating of all props and scenery, etc.  

If that sounds interesting and fun and you are interested in coaching or having your child partake, please email Tina Groff.
