Odyssey of the Mind
A Creative Problem Solving Competition
2022-2023 is going to be an exciting year! One program, six problems.
Given the ongoing challenges of the pandemic and the fact that OMers know there are many solutions to a problem, this year Odyssey of the Mind has returned to offering our Traditional Memberships!
Also note that all six of our 2022-2023 Long-Term Problems are available now when you register!
Good luck, stay safe, stay creative, and have fun!!
We are thrilled that we have teams who want to participate this year and are looking forward to having them in the program. Our Board Members feel like we have been right in the middle of a spontaneous problem this year……..and we have to look for creative solutions to many questions. (I guess you are never too old for Odyssey!) We have been busy coming up with solutions to make this year successful and fun.
Currently, we plan on having an in-person tournament. We feel that team members have a richer, more satisfying experience when they can perform in front of an audience. We will be making some changes in the tournaments in order to minimize the number of people in one area. Our state tournament has been set for March 4, 2023 in Columbia.
