Talking Odyssey of the Mind, anyone?

I've heard a few KidPubbers besides me do it. Are you one of them? So this is pretty much a thread to discuss OM, like what problem you're doing, when Regionals is for you, and your experiance. ^_^

*desperately hopes another OMer will post on this thread in the near future* xD

I don't, but my cousin one second place in the regionals. She's going to the state competition. :3

I REALLY wish my school would do it. It sounds epyk. D:

Yay. Explaining time. 8D

So, Odyssey of the Mind (OM) is a program for 3-12 grade. If you're in it, you're put n a 5-7 kid team, and right at the beginning of the year your team picks a "problem" - a big set of requirements, pretty much. The main goal of OM is to make an 8-minute (max) skit, that includes all the requirements in the problem your team chose. Even better - you have to write the script, make the costumes, make the backdrop, make the props all by yourselves with no help from your coach(es) and no outside assistance. AND YOU GET EXTRA POINTS IF YOU MAKE STUFF OUTTA TRASH. 8DDDDDD

So anyway, it's so much fun, and the competitions are really intense. I love it. *hugs homemade OMer stuffed animal*

*coughs* Um, yeah. People who do OM are called OMers (not "oh-em-ers", "ohm-ers") but the mascot is named OMer, too. He's a raccoon. ^_^

And I haven't even told you about spontaneous and pin-trading and Worlds and the awards ceremony... 8'D

But seriously, go on YouTube and search "Odyssey of the Mind 2011 World Finals". These are the best skits.
