Once again, San Elijo Hills will be represented at the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals tournament to be held at Iowa State University on May 25-28, 2016!

OotM is a "creative competition." The kids are tasked with putting together an 8 minute skit completely by themselves. After months of hard work, they enter their skit in tournaments and compete against other teams from the region, state and possibly the nation and world. The program focuses on creativity, teamwork, project management and decision making.

This year, the girls moved up to Division II where they competed against other 6-8th graders. The team is made up of Elisenne, Ella, Katja, Marissa, Maya, and Morgan.

Last year at the World Finals, the kids came in 8th place among nearly 70 teams, and this year, they are hoping to repeat their strong finish to the season. They are off to a fantastic start. In the Regional competition, held on March 12 in Encinitas, they came in First Place in their Problem and Division. Next, in the State tournament, held on April 2 at UC Riverside, they repeated their success and tied for First Place, earning an invitation to the World Finals.

Our team will represent San Elijo Hills and California on an International stage where over 800 teams from around the world will showcase their creative solutions to the Odyssey problems.

The kids worked really hard this year on their Odyssey project. We couldn’t be more proud of them!

Last year, the cost of the trip was over $10,000, and thanks to your generous donations, they went a long way towards the costs of housing, freight-shipping of the props and flights. We hope we can count on your support again to show the world that creativity and talent are thriving in Hills of San Elijo!
