Two of ND Academy's competitive Odyssey of the Mind (OOTM) teams both placed in their regional competitions on Saturday, March 2. Our Upper School Technical Problem team placed first in their division, and our Middle School Vehicle Team placed second in their division. Both teams advance to the State Finals at Columbus State University on Saturday, April 13.

ND Academy's Upper School Team was also awarded an OMER award to recognize "the team's exceptional talent in the creation of their innovative backdrop. The team designed an intricate "peacock feathers" design of interlocking panels. This allowed the scenes to be changed by folding, unfolding, rotating, and replacing the "peacocks." Paired with simply outstanding artistic quality in the abstract settings, this team's performance was outstanding and left the judges in awe." And our team mom, Karen Slack, was awarded not one, but two OMER awards recognizing her years of dedicated support to both of our ND Academy teams, and her outstanding volunteer service to the Odyssey judges at the March 2 tournament.

Finally, the girls on the Upper School team were recognized at both opening and closing ceremonies for their dedicated eleventh year of competition as an Odyssey of the Mind team.

Congratulations to all of our OOTM students and parents for their amazing accomplishments!
