Illinois Creativity Festival:

"It's All About Meme!"

The 2019-2020 Odyssey of the Mind year will go down in the history books as a time requiring extreme creativity. From virtual competitions to a virtual Creativity Festival, technology allowed us to come together to celebrate creativity when society, health concerns, and safety restrictions kept us safely apart.

The Illinois Odyssey family is thankful teams around the world were able to compete in the virtual World Finals competition this year...BUT we are even MORE excited to get back to normal with the 2020-2021 Odyssey of the Mind school year!


The 2020-2021 Long-Term Problem Synopses should be released at the main Odyssey of the Mind website at some point over the next few weeks. Your team's job is to create a funny, cool, or topical MEME based on one of the new problems, all the problems, or Odyssey of the Mind in general. We want you to create the meme, upload it here, and share it on all the social media platforms so that other people can learn about Odyssey of the Mind and maybe even join us in competition for the 2020-2021 year!  Once you upload your meme here, you will be given a link to get your official Illinois Creativity Festival stamp!
