Hey, Omers! Odyssey of the Mind tryouts are coming up fast

September 12, 2023

Omer, gosh… it’s almost time for Odyssey of the Mind tryouts!

Be part of the great Warwick tradition of prize-winning, performative problem-solving and be on one of our district’s teams. 

The OOTM tryout is an audition process. It is mandatory that all students attend the tryout date in order to be considered for an Odyssey team.  And yes, if you competed in previous years, you still have to audition.
