Congratulations Odyssey of the Mind Teams!
May 14, 2014

Mt. Lebanon students had an outstanding Odyssey of the Mind season this year with strong performances at the regional and state levels.  At the regional competition in March, twenty-eight teams from Mt. Lebanon participated and nine teams advanced to the State Finals. In addition, the high school team of Lydia Herman, Eva Morrison, Olivia Pandolfi, Ellie DePastino, Katie Lindefjeld, and Katie Brown were  honored with the  most prestigious award in Odyssey of the Mind- the  Ranatra Fusca Creativity Award. This award represents the essence of the Odyssey of the Mind program. It is presented to teams or individuals who exhibit exceptional creativity either in some aspect of the problem solution, their behavior, or through an extraordinary idea beyond the problem solution.  Some of these high school seniors have been on the same  OM team since 1st grade at Washington.

At the state competition in April, Mt. Lebanon had the most teams of any school district represented. Teams from Foster, Jefferson Middle, Mellon Middle, Markham, Jefferson Elementary, and the high school participated.  The Odyssey of the Mind team from the high school went on to win first place in the state finals and were invited to attend the OM World competition at Iowa State University at the end of May.  Congratulations to seniors Lydia Herman, Eva Morrison, Olivia Pandolfi, Ellie DePastino, Katie Lindefjeld, and Katie Brown on their first place win, and congratulations to all of the students at every grade level and their coaches for an exceptional year.
