The Mount St. Mary Academy Odyssey of the Mind team competed in the Regional competition at MLK Elementary on February 25. The team won first place in their first competition of the year and will advance to the state competition on April 1.
Odyssey of the Mind (OM) is an international problem-solving competition designed for pre-school through college-age students. Unlike Quiz Bowl or other like competitions, OM has a creative interpretation element and an interpretive solution to a multi-stage long-term problem. This year’s problem involves an original performance about time travelers looking to discover the inspiration for great works of art.
Mount St. Mary Academy has participated in Odyssey of the Mind since 1996. Its teams regularly have been awarded first or second place in regional and state competitions since 1999, and teams have placed in the top six at the World Finals consecutively for the past three years.
