Plymouth Whitemarsh’s High School’s Odyssey of the Mind team heading to the world finals

Plymouth Whitemarsh High School’s Odyssey of the Mind (OM) team recently placed third in Pennsylvania, becoming eligible to compete at the 2022 World Finals at Iowa State University.

OM is a creative problem-solving competition. Teams of students work together, applying their skills and imaginations to develop and present solutions to problems that can range from building mechanical structures and vehicles to re-imagining literary classics.

Attending the World Finals is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the students to compete on an international stage with teams from all over the United States and more than 20 countries.

But the team needs your help. The competition is May 25-28th so there’s not much time to raise the money to be able to attend. Donations will help pay for travel, room and board, and competition costs for the seven members of the team and three adults (two coaches and a judge). The team isn’t receiving any funding from the school district and is responsible for raising every dollar needed, so every little bit can help!
