Congratulations to the Owen J. Roberts Odyssey of the Mind teams. On Saturday, March 14th eleven teams from our school district competed at Millersville University in the East Central Regional Odyssey of the Mind Competition. Of our 11 competing teams, 8 will move on to the state finals contest in Berwick, PA on April 11th.
Three of our high school Odyssey of the Mind teams earned two first place finishes and one second place, which will move them onto the state finals. Two of our middle school teams will move on in the competition through their achievement of one first place honor and a second place finish at regionals. Additionally, French Creek, West Vincent, and East Vincent Elementary all were first place finishers, which qualifies them to move onto to states.
Teams from East Coventry and North Coventry Elementary narrowly missed making the cut by finishing in third place. In Owen J’s nearly three decades of competing in these problem solving contests, this is one of the finest outcomes in our history. A big congratulations to all of the students who work to represent our district!
