Odyssey of the Mind World, bitches

This weekend was pretty awesome. I’m splitting it up into two posts because each topic varies so differently.

Here, I’ll talk about Saturday.
Yesterday was Michigan’s State Competition for Odyssey  of the Mind. For those who don’t know what OM is, you have a few months to write a skit that meets certain themes and criteria that costs under 120 dollars to produce, requiring a set, costumes, and props.

There are four divisions for OM, separated by age. Division 1 is grades K – 4, Division 2 is grades 5 – 8, Division 3 is grades 9 – 12, and Division 4 is College on. I’m in Division 3, and there are usually very few teams in our division. We were up against 3 other teams.

Our team took first place, which won us gold medals and a trophy. We’ll now advance to the World Competition held in at Maryland University, where teams from literally all over the world will be competing. We made it to World last year, and befriended a Japanese team. We’ll get to stay in the university dorms for 3 days, so that’ll be a good time.

I’ll write my second post tomorrow, so adios to all for now~

    Hey there Alec!
    I was just reading some of your posts here on your blog and I think you’re doing a great job. I’m a writer who specializes in human experience so I am really interested in reading blogs like yours. Its where I get inspiration for my works or where I learn stuff, because I believe everybody has something to teach.

    Anyway, I’ll keep posted to your blog and I hope to read more of your work.
