    Odyssey of the Mind Schools have a great opportunity to participate in the Odyssey of the Mind Homestay program where members of US team hosts an International team following the close of World Finals.  The Hosting team does not have to be attending World Finals to host an International team.  Hosting an International team usually requires 2-4 families working together to house, feed & provide local transportation.  The International team is responsible for arranging their own transportation to & from the city of the Hosting team.  This is a great way to  develop friendships and learn about each other’s homes and families.

    If you are interested in hosting an International team contact Homestay Coordinator Tom Scott at for more information.
