Congratulations to the M-W Middle School Odyssey of the Mind team that recently placed 6th in the world at the 39th annual Odyssey of the Mind (OM) World Finals competition last week in Ames, Iowa. 

Odyssey of the Mind team smiles as they compete at Worlds.Monroe-Woodbury’s team of seven students, coached by Odyssey veteran Joanne McInerney, competed against 75 teams from around the world. OM team members include: Anushree Buragohain, Jamie Calub, Colin Davidson, James Dawson, Khushi Girish, Shreya Girish and Isabelle Varghese.

The team received impressive creative scores for the Odyssey Theatrical Problem #5: “A Stellar Hangout.”  These dynamic thinkers brought the M-W Odyssey program to the Varsity level, with their impressive and elegant solution. Their performance was a model of excellence in group problem solving.

As the season comes to an end, the hopes and dreams of all the M-W creative Crusaders are set on next year.  The hope is to return to World Finals!
