Calling all coaches! The deadline to register your team for the CTOM state finals tournament is February 27th. For this year’s virtual tournament teams do not have to provide a judge or volunteer. The registration fee of $135 – 40% off our usual fee in celebration of CTOM’s 40th anniversary – is due by March 13th. We can’t wait to see all that teamwork and creativity on display!


Announcing a new partnership with Kids Helping Kids!

Connecticut Odyssey of the Mind (CTOM) is pleased to announce a partnership with Kids Helping Kids (KHK), a fellow 501(c)(3) organization focused on developing leadership skills through youth-led service projects. The new partnership enables interested students from across Connecticut to participate in the 2020-2021 Odyssey of the Mind program as members of teams representing KHK. Complete details are available here. If your district or local community organization is not offering enrichment programs like Odyssey this year, consider registering your team through KHK.

Registration 2021 Update:

Team registration is open.  Visit the coach registration page to register.

Odyssey of the Mind is offering Traditional Memberships and Virtual Memberships for the 2021 program year. Be sure to check out the new and enhanced Program Guide!

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!
