Tournament Day Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! Through the generosity of time and talent, our judges & volunteers contribute their skills, knowledge, and interests to provide an amazing experience for kids. Just like an Odyssey of the Mind team, we want our  volunteers to capitalize on their strengths when donating their time and energy. Thus, we have a variety of roles to ensure your experience is fun and rewarding! Please click the links to the left to learn more about the different tournament roles. You are sure to see something that piques your interests and if not, please contact us to share how you would like to support creative problem solving in the young minds of the future.

Odyssey of the Mind is a completely volunteer run organization. It takes approximately 100 judges and 100 volunteers, depending on tournament size, to run a smooth tournament and we count on each and every one to help make this a positive experience for the teams.

General Information about Volunteers:

  • It is strongly suggested that volunteers not be coaches! It is suggested that parents or other Odyssey supporters have the opportunity.
  • Volunteers should not be scheduled to work during your team’s performance, but with our online scheduling it’s easy to choose a time that works for you.
  • We ask that Volunteers work only a few hours during the competition day.
  • All Odyssey of the Mind volunteers must be 18 years or older and high school graduates.
