Onslow County Students Place Fourth In The World

Students from one school here in Eastern Carolina are the fourth best in the world!

A team from Dixon Elementary School recently competed in the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals.

The Onslow County students placed fourth out of 800 teams.

In Odyssey of the Mind, teams work on creative, hands-on problem solving in a competitive environment. They compete under one of several long-term problems performed before a panel of judges.

Teams are also given a spontaneous problem to solve in a very short period of time. All of the work to solve the long-term problem must be done by the students without any outside assistance, including their coach.

The world finals were held last weekend at Iowa State University.
