Odyssey of the Mind Headed to Worlds

The Opposites Distract Odyssey of the Mind team is heading to the World Finals in May and there are many ways to help them get there. GoFundMe, raffles, a car wash, and bottle donations will all defray costs.

This is only the second team from Williams Elementary to qualify for Worlds, held this year over Memorial Day weekend at Michigan State University.

Getting to Michigan is an expensive proposition. With the cost estimated at about $1,000 per person for 14 people to make the trip, the OM team needs all the help it can get. RSU 18 has generously contributed and the team is hoping to raise significant funds through several activities.

The GoFundMe page is at this link: https://tinyurl.com/yxbbp9xp

The team members are selling raffle tickets for several baskets. Please see the attached fliers for more information and contact coach Sara McDougall at smcdougall@rsu18.org or 207-735-3637 if you are interested in buying tickets.  The drawing will be held on May 16th.

The kids also are collecting bottles and cans at Oakland Redemption, at Trafton Road redemption and at D and L. When you drop off your bottles, specify that you want the funds to be deposited into the WES OM account.  

The car wash is scheduled for Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at AutoZone on Kennedy Memorial Drive. Time to wash off winter’s grit for a good cause!
