The team presented their problem solution at the regional competition in early March. They competed against 12 other teams and secured themselves a first place finish that qualified them to compete in the state tournament. At the state tournament, the team placed second against all of North Carolina teams and again qualified to advance to the World Finals in Iowa!
Iowa State University hosts the World Final competition in late May. The tournament will cost the team approximately $10,000 to include room/board for four days, travel to/from Iowa and shipping props and vehicle to Iowa.
This will be the first time that a public school in North Carolina has qualified to compete in the international competition of Odyssey of the Mind. It is an amazing opportunity for these students and we would love to see them bring this dream to a reality! Please help if you can!
