Judges & Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in judging and volunteering! Through the generosity of time and talent, our judges & volunteers contribute their skills, knowledge and interests to provide an amazing experience for kids. Just like an Odyssey of the Mind team, we want our judges & volunteers to capitalize on their strengths when donating their time and energy. Thus, we have a variety of roles to ensure your experience is fun and rewarding! Please click the links to the left to learn more about the different tournament roles. You are sure to see something that piques your interests and if not, please contact us to share how you would like to support creative problem solving in the young minds of the future.
To ensure teams are scored fairly, we require each team to provide a judge (and volunteer) for tournament day so we can provide necessary training prior to the big day. A judge will need to be available for this role all day so there is consistent scoring. Simply stated, the teams, and very likely your children, have worked too hard not to be judged fairly. If you are a past or present supporter of the Odyssey of the Mind program please consider helping judge this year’s event. We have many different judging roles to meet your interests. Please click on the Judge Roles & Description link at the left of this page for a full description of each – there is something for everyone!
Volunteers – It’s All About Fun
Odyssey of the Mind is an all volunteer organization. It takes approximately 80 judges and 80 volunteers to run a smooth tournament and we count on each and every one to help make this a positive experience for the kids.
