title: Odyssey of the Mind Pittsburgh Jewish Day School Competition
description: On Sunday, May 6 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., area students will put their creative problem-solving skills to the test in the Pittsburgh Jewish Day School Odyssey of the Mind Competition. The competition will be held at Community Day School at 6424 Forward Avenue in Squirrel Hill, with participants in Grades 3 to 8 joining from Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh and Hillel Academy of Pittsburgh.
Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Participants in Odyssey of the Mind build self-confidence, develop life skills, create new friendships, and are able to recognize and explore their true potential.
During the competition, trained judges from Odyssey of the Mind and the Pittsburgh Jewish community will evaluate teams from the three Pittsburgh day schools. The students will compete in solving spontaneous verbal and hands-on problems, as well as present the solutions to long-term problems they have been working on throughout the year.
