Odyssey of the Mind
A unique opportunity to showcase a child's gifts in visual arts, engineering, problem solving, team work, leadership, and critical thinking.
WHAT IS ODYSSEY OF THE MIND?
Odyssey of the Mind (OM) is a team-based creative competition for children in grades K-12. With the support of parent coaches, teams work over several months to “solve” a problem. Teams then present these solutions in the form of a skit during a fun and friendly competition against other teams in their age division. OM gives kids a chance to practice their teamwork, problem-solving, leadership, and critical thinking skills.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Odyssey is great for kids with an interest in art, engineering, singing, sewing, building, acting, tinkering, writing, puzzles, comedy, and asking millions of questions about anything and everything. In short, OM is for everyone! There are plenty of opportunities for kids to get up and perform, and lots of “backstage” roles for kids who are less comfortable in the spotlight.
WHEN DOES OM RUN?
Program planning begins in the fall; peak team activity occurs in January; and the qualifying competition will be held in early February. Winners at qualifying tournament can advance to state and national competitions later in the spring!
