What is Outside Assistance 
Outside Assistance(OA): when someone other than a team member suggests an idea or works on the teams solution in any way. Students learn along the journey of Odyssey of the Mind…….if someone else takes the trip for them, well, the students don’t learn anything. In Odyssey of the Mind, students compete with other students their age to keep things fair. If an adult or older student solves the problem, the competition is unfair. OA deprives student of the programs’ benefits!
 Program Guide Changes
Each year there are small changes made to the Program Guide.

  1. I am trying to get my team registrations in. Could you remind me what the cost is for state registration? I can’t find this info anywhere and last year I was “surprised” by this fee. Also, do we need to RSVP for coaches training? Thanks.

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      Team registration information has been updated on the main page of our website.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

  2. Could someone please help me with a question of eligibility? I was told that all Odyssey team members must be passing their school classes with a D or better but I am unable to find this requirement in any of my materials. Is this true and if so, where can I find documentation of this requirement? Thanks!

    1. Jennifer,
      Please refer to your schools policy regarding participation in extracurricular activities and academic eligibility. We follow all school guidelines for participation in extracurricular activities. While the specific guidelines vary by school district, most require passing grade the week prior to competition in order to participate.

      Please email me if you have any questions.
