Hello OMers

VT Odyssey of the mind is excited to begin our 41st year.  We are one of the founding chapters in this program and team participation has declined for the past 6 years by 50%.    We need your help to increase awareness and participation your local area.  Having been involved in OM, you know how amazing this program is to improve student creativity, team-work and problem-solving skills, and having fun while doing it.  Our goal is to reach as many Vermont students as possible and the best way to do this is with the help of those with first-hand experience. 

Here are a few possible ways you can help:

  • Introduce the OM program to friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers who have students between K-12th grades.  For more information, they can go to our website http://vt.odysseyofthemind.org or contact us directly.
  • Do you live in a high traffic area, would you be willing to place a Lawn sign along the road in front of your home? This is what it looks like (two sides the same).
  • Help us set-up an Information Night at your local school, library, home-school group, recreational department, etc.    Give us a time and place and we will be there!  We will come prepared to tell them all about OM and assist in getting teams started.

To stay in touch with OM please go to the following link so we can add you to our OM National Alumni Directory: https://www.odysseyalumni.org/.    This is for coaches, judges and past team members.  We love seeing our VT OM alumni involved at the local and national level.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,
