                                                    Randall Middle School – Odyssey of the Mind – World Finals

Randall Middle School’s 7th grade Odyssey of the Mind team qualifies for WORLD FINALS by placing 1st in the State of Florida competition.


Odyssey of the Mind 
is an international creative problem-solving competition that helps students develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork, math, engineering, science, writing, and the performing arts.  Each year teams choose one of five different problems to solve. This year, the Randall Middle School team chose the Triathlon Travels problem. For this problem, the team had to design, build, and drive a self-propelled original vehicle in an Odyssey-style triathlon. During the triathlon, the team had to use the vehicle to compete in three events (curling, jousting and track).  The action takes place in a Wizard of Oz themed performance.  They wrote the script, created all of their own scenery and props, fabricated their costumes, and learned about teamwork and creativity along the way!

World Finals will be held at Iowa State University May 23 - May 26. More than 850 teams from throughout the U.S. and 26 other countries compete at World Finals.

This is the third time our team has competed in Odyssey of the Mind and we were the first ever team to represent our schools (FishHawk Creek Elementary and Randall Middle). 

2016 – Won 1st place Regionals, 5th place State

2017 – Won 1st place Regionals, 1st place State, invited to World Finals but did not go due to lack of funding.

2018 - Won 1st place Regionals, 1st place State, invited to the World Finals and this year we are going all the way!! 


Randall Middle is the only team in Hillsborough County competing in the World Finals competition.  


In order to attend, these students need to raise approximately $10,000 to get their seven-member team and coaches to Ames, Iowa. This money will be used to pay for registration fees, travel expenses, campus housing, meals, and expenses associated with shipping their vehicle, scenery, props, and costumes. 

We are so excited about this amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!  We greatly appreciate any donation that you can provide to help us make our trip to Iowa and compete for the World Title.
