A combined Middlebrook and Cider Mill Team has brought home the Renatra Fusco Creativity Award at the Odyssey of the Mind State Championship held on March 16 at the Southern CT State University. The Renatra Fusco award is given to the team that demonstrates outstanding creativity in the competition. This is the first time a Wilton team has ever won this most coveted prize.
Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program that engages students in their learning by allowing their knowledge and ideas to come to life in an exciting, productive environment. Participants build self-confidence, develop life skills, create new friendships, and are able to recognize and explore their true potential
This award means that the team has qualified for the Odyssey of the Mind World Championships to be held in May at the Michigan State University.
We are very excited for and proud of these kids who’ve worked so very hard these last 5 months
