How to Get Started!
Begin with generating interest in the program with staff, students and parents to form teams, recruit coaches, judges and volunteers.
Once a school has interest, then it is time to purchase a National Membership with Odyssey of the Mind.
The cost is $290 and allows the school to field up to one team per competitive problem per division and unlimited primary teams (K-2).
Teams compete by division which is determined by the oldest team member.
Division I — Grades K-5
Division II — Grades 6-8
Division III — Grades 9-12
Division IV — Collegiate
Form teams and begin to develop your solutions for competitions
