Division 3 Team Popcorn

Our "Fins, Furs, Feathers, & Friends" Division 3 team traveled to Ewing High School to compete with great OM teams from across the state.

Our "Aesop Gone Viral" Division 1 team is 2nd in New Jersey!

Seven Collingswood Recreation Program Odyssey of the Mind teams traveled to the New Jersey State Finals on Saturday April 9 held at Ewing High School. There they competed with dozens of other teams from across the state. The teams qualified for state finals after being awarded 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place at the Lighthouse Regional Tournament held in March.  We are tremendously proud of all our OMers and applaud their creativity, dedication, and teamwork throughout the 2016 OM season.

Two of our teams qualified for OM World Finals 2016:

  • Fins, Furs, Feathers, & Friends, Division 3 (9-12th grade) - 1st Place, New Jersey State Champions, and top scores in the Long-term, Style, and Spontaneous categories.
  • Aesop Gone Viral, Division 1 (K-5th grade) - 2nd place in New Jersey

Congratulations OMers!  And thank you coaches, parents, and volunteers who made this possible.
