2022 State Champions

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is proud of its five Odyssey of the Mind teams on their hard work and excellent performance at the 2022 Southern California State Competition.  Odyssey of the Mind is a competition focused on creative problem solving and teamwork and has been one of Assumption’s valued extracurricular programs for many years. It involves both a long term problem with a particular focus around which teams create props and an original skit, and a spontaneous problem which the team solves on the spot without assistance.  Assumption teams did very well at the State competition taking 1st, 5th and 7th in problem 1 (create a vehicle that can perform certain tasks), 5th place in problem 2 (create a technology to solve a self replicating environmental threat) and 3rd place in problem 3 (classics – create a biographical musical) for the middle school division.  One of the Assumption teams also took first place in the spontaneous competition for their problem and division.
