For the second year in a row Odyssey of the Mind World Finals has gone virtual, allowing teams to participate from around the world who wouldn’t otherwise be able to travel.

Congrats Virtual OMers! You’ve proven yet again that creativity has no boundaries. We look forward to putting your creative problem-solving skills on display for the world. Remember, you are changing the world one solution at a time.

Thanks to all Odyssey teams and volunteers, you’ve continued to show great tenacity and beyond the box thinking in creating all kinds of creative virtual solutions …especially Odyssey of the Mind problems!


2021 Virtual World Finals has begun!

Thank you to the many hundreds of teams who are competing from around the world. Our officials will spend the next week verifying that all team submissions are completed and judging will begin shortly after. We can’t wait to see your solutions!
