Odyssey of the Mind has been introducing young people to creative problem solving for over 40 years, and the volunteers of Creative Opportunities Unlimited (COU) strive to bring OM to more young people around the U.S. (and the world) while also providing scholarships and housing grants to current OM participants! To do this, COU holds a sweepstakes each year where a few lucky participants have the chance to get to receive full pin sets and/or OM fleece blankets made from Odyssey of the Mind shirts from all around the world!
The Pin Sets: COU collects official state and country pins from associations all over the United States and around the globe each year to create massive pin sets representing OM around the world! Each year, a few lucky winners will be randomly drawn from all sweepstakes entries to be the recipients of these collector's items!
The Fleece Blankets: OM shirts are always fun, creative, and comfy, so imagine a collection of OM shirts from all over the U.S. and around the world sewn together as a warm, fleece blanket! A few lucky winners will be randomly drawn from the sweepstakes entries to be the recipients of these unique collector's items!
Where Does the Money Go? Creative Opportunities Unlimited (COU) supports teams around the world with scholarships for individual Omers, housing grants for World Finals, and local Association grants that help member associations around the world bring the Odyssey of the Mind program to more students. Your donation goes toward supporting these initiatives as we celebrate the bright young participants in Odyssey of the Mind!
