Team Tardigrade (Division 2, Problem 5 - "A Stellar Hangout") with their buddy team from Hong Kong at the 2018 World Finals at Iowa State University in Ames, IA. The team finished 8th in the world in their group, the highest finish for a Collingswood team since we began the program in 2012.
Dear Friends of Collingswood Recreation Program Odyssey of the Mind,
OM doesn't allow outside assistance when the kids are working on their long-term problem solutions, but that only goes so far. Building an all-volunteer program like ours, involving nearly 100 kids, requires tons of outside assistance.
On behalf of the kids, coaches, parents, and officials involved with CRPOM, thank you for your support in the 2017-2018 season. Without your generous donations and other assistance, our 14 teams and 2 Primary Clubs would not have been able to hold practices, compete at the Regional and State tournaments, or travel to the World Finals at Iowa State University. Our teams achieved amazing things this year and we are so, so grateful.
In particular, I wish to acknowledge the individuals and organizations listed below for their donations, promotional support, and other assistance. Please visit the websites of the local businesses and organizations linked here, and consider giving these generous and community-minded people your business. Please let me know about any omissions or errors.
Thank you again,
