This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Participants build self-confidence, develop life skills, create new friendships, and are able to recognize and explore their true potential. OotM proves that students can have fun while they learn.

Odyssey of the Mind begins at the local level. Schools join and form teams that are coached by an adult. The teams select their long-term problem, develop a solution entirely on their own, and practice spontaneous problem solving. Local associations then organize and operate training sessions and tournaments where teams will present their long-term solutions in competition.

For U.S. teams, the first level of competition is usually within a region of their state. Teams that place in that tournament are invited to compete at the state level. These championship teams are then invited to participate in the annual Odyssey of the Mind World Finals, where they compete with teams from countries around the world.

Each team is reviewed on how well they respond to their selected problem. For specific details see the competition website.
