BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Twenty-seven Brevard County teams advanced to the Florida Odyssey of the Mind State Finals set at the University of Central Florida on April 14.

Space Coast is a region of Florida Odyssey of the Mind Association which covers Brevard and Indian River Counties. Odyssey of the Mind is a creative problem-solving program for students in kindergarten through college.

A total of eighty-eight teams from Brevard County competed to earn a chance to advance to Florida Odyssey of the Mind State Finals. The qualifying tournament was held Saturday, March 3 at Viera High School.

One team from West Shore Jr./Sr. High received the Ranatra Fusca Award, the highest honor given in Odyssey of the Mind competition.

“The Ranatra Fusca Creativity Award represents the essence of the Odyssey of the Mind,” said Sue Klaasen, Space Coast Odyssey of the Mind Regional Director.

“It is presented to teams or individuals who exhibit exceptional creativity, either through some aspect of their problem solution, or an extraordinary idea beyond the problem solution.

“A successful problem solution is not a criterion for winning the award; rather, the award is a way to acknowledge and encourage creative thinking and risk-taking.”
