HARD WORK PAYS OFF


Long hours and dedication have certainly paid off for the Minisink Valley High School Odyssey of the Mind team.  They are headed for East Lansing Michigan in May to compete at the World Finals.  The team worked extremely hard to prepare for the regional and state competition, which included a presentation called “Around the World in Eight Minutes.”  Team members had to present their unique story that included a traveler that takes a trip around the world.

 

 

The team won first place at the NYS competition held in Binghamton the last weekend in March.  This is the third time coaches Nicole Ey and Jean Brennan have taken a Minisink Valley team to Worlds together.  This year’s team includes Matthew Graham, Amanda Kiselak, Karl Bernhardsen, Ashley Graham, Faith Miedema, and Beth Nelting.
