This year's World Finals is sure to be an exciting celebration of creativity, albeit slightly different from what we're used to due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Omers know that sometimes the best creative ideas are born out of necessity, and this year Creative Opportunities Unlimited (COU) is pleased to announce an online sweepstakes for one of two 2020 Pin Sets or one of three World Finals shirt fleece blankets! So, even though we cannot all be together in person at World Finals this year where we would normally have a pin and quilt/blanket raffle, we can still give away these awesome prizes in an online sweepstakes!
The Pin Sets: We have collected official state and country pins from associations all over the United States and around the globe to create two sets of 2020 World Finals pins. Two lucky winners will be randomly drawn from all sweepstakes entries to be the recipients of these collector's items!
The Fleece Blankets: Each year for the past several years we were lucky to have some Omer family members create beautiful quilts made from the official shirts from associations around the world. This year the quilts are getting a new twist with the addition of warm, fuzzy fleece! Three lucky winners will be randomly drawn from the sweepstakes entries to be the recipients of these 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. For this year's World Finals, we will be providing students with scholarships and teams with grants to cover their registration and/or materials needed to compete in the virtual competition. Your donation goes toward supporting these initiatives as we celebrate the bright young participants in Odyssey of the Mind!
