The World Finals
It is the goal of most every OMer to reach the World Finals, a unique spectacle in which more than 5,000 creative students take over a university. We have some pages here to prepare you for the big event. For more information about the World Finals, visit the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals page.

Find us at the World Finals. We'd love to meet you. Created by Lee and Matthew Semel
