Odyssey of the Mind

A group of Manor School students traveled to Ames, Iowa at the end of May to compete in the World competition for Odyssey of the Mind. The team of 5th grade girls coached by Jessa Jones finished in 8th place out of 49 teams from all over the world. Congratulations on a job well done! Manor also had one member from a Primary Problem team attend. Samson Schaefer showcased the team's solution and won the prestigious OMER's award as well. The HF-L community was well represented thanks to the efforts of these Manor School students. https://www.nyodyssey.org/post/omer-s-award-winner
