Odyssey of the Mind team

A Gardner-Dickinson team was honored at this year’s regional Odyssey of the Mind regional competition for serving as a role model of exemplary behavior.

Students earned the OMER’s Award during the competition held on March 25 at the Coxsackie-Athens Central School District.

“I’m proud of all three Gardner-Dickinson teams who spent months working afterschool to prepare for the competition,” said Superintendent Dr. Thomas Reardon. “It was great to see our students honored for their team spirit.”

Odyssey of the Mind is an international program that challenges students to use their creativity to solve problems. The event builds teamwork and self-confidence in students as they work together to create sets and perform their solution before judges.
