There are two ways to Join – (All Long-Term Problems, Program Guide, and additional materials included with either membership will be available for download only in the Members Area once you are registered and receive your login information.)
Traditional or Virtual Membership Registration – You can register online for both with a credit card or upload a Purchase Order
Traditional Membership – This is our in-person competition membership allowing for one team per problem and division as qualified. Individual teams may choose to compete in the Traditional platform or Virtual platform.
Virtual Membership – This membership will allow anyone, including a school or community group, to form one team of up to 7 team members to compete in a Virtual online competition.
Given the details of the pandemic, Odyssey of the Mind is offering Traditional Memberships and Virtual Memberships!
Having the option of a Virtual or a Traditional Membership gives everyone the opportunity to use their creativity to solve problems. Teams from both types of memberships will be solving the same problems with the same clarifications. Every team is guaranteed the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity in an official Odyssey of the Mind tournament. Teams will be able to advance in competition and could ultimately earn their way to our World Finals or our Virtual World Finals!
Also, all six of our 2020-2021 Long-Term Problems are available now!
The 2019 Intro Package (PDF) contains a wealth of information about the program and details to get you started. It includes introduction letters, additional materials about the Odyssey of the Mind program, and Tropical region specific information.
