Fessenden Fund Senior Scholarship Winners!

Greetings Omers!

We would like to take a moment to honor all of our Seniors for their continued commitment and the hard work that went into their solutions each year. We know that this year has not turned out the way we had all planned, but the 2020 Odyssey season has certainly been a wild and crazy year that we all will remember for the rest of our lives. We hope to see each one of you back next year to judge!

Now, we want to give a big virtual round of applause to our 2020 Fessenden Fund Scholarship winners. We wish them all the best for their future academic endeavors and know they will do great things!

Our 2020 Fessenden Scholarship winners are:

Jayden Ayash from Marietta

Kate Lemons from Johns Creek

World Finals is going Virtual

For 2020, All Georgia teams are being invited to participate at World Finals! Due the current global climate and COVID 19 situation, World Finals is going virtual. Even crazier, the rules for submissions will be coming out April 1st, NO FOOLING! The expectation is regular solutions to creative substitutions will be accepted! Just like you, we’re all eagerly awaiting the problem solving challenges and solutions to come!

Tournament Cancellations

The Georgia Odyssey of the Mind Board and Problem Captains met today and came to the sad realization that we must cancel the South Georgia Tournament and State Finals. This decision was not an easy decision. We know that your teams have been working very hard over the last several months and were looking forward to presenting their solution. We want to honor their work and commitment to Georgia Odyssey of the Mind.

Please know that we respect and honor the hard work that you and your team have put in over the last few months. We wish that we could celebrate their creative journey with them in our traditional manner, but are looking for ways to celebrate creativity creatively. We’ll be in touch with all teams to make sure every team has the opportunity to present their solution this year!

Update on current events

The Georgia Odyssey of the Mind Board of Directors will be meeting this weekend to make a determination regarding the South Georgia Regional Tournament scheduled for March 21 and State Finals scheduled for April 4.
