Odyssey Wins

Odyssey of the Mind is a creative, educational program, which provides students with opportunities from building technical machinery to interpreting theatrical pieces. The Miramonte team, after placing first in the regional tournament and second in the state tournament, is headed to Michigan State University where they will compete in the World Tournament.

“How we place at worlds is not important to us,” said team member junior Kathryn Butler. “We are just happy to be able to go.”

The team consists of Butler and juniors Caety Klingman, Melissa Chenok, Ann Pister, Ariel Cohen and College Preparatory junior T.J. Barber. The team participated in problem five entitled “Food Court.” In this problem, the team was required to create a theatrical scenario involving fruits and vegetables, while meeting a set of requirements specific to their problem.

They will be judged upon various categories, including acting, style, overall effect and creativity.

The tournament will take place May 26-30.
