Two teams of Cairo-Durham Elementary students competed in the Region 4 Odyssey of the Mind Tournament on March 9, 2019. 

The teams, which consisted of fourth and fifth grade students, had to select "problems" to solve using their creatvity and teamwork skills. The problems tackled by CDE students were "OMER to the Rescue Again" and "Hide in Plain Sight." Click here to read descriptions of all the problem scenarios

The CDE team that worked on a solution for "OMER to the Rescue Again" placed third in their division. Unfortunately this was not enough to qualify them for the state competition, but it is a huge accomplishment for our young teams and their first-year coaches, David Czajkowski and Sarit Saad. Congrats to all!
