By Angela Hatcher
BEDFORD CO. - Some local students are going on a worldwide odyssey.
Two Liberty High School 'Odyssey of the Mind' teams just won their state competitions and are heading to Michigan for the world finals in May.
The fourteen team members will face other state winners and teams from forty countries in the creative, problem solving competition.
"One of the teams has been together working on this since they were in kindergarten and they are finally seniors and they have finally won.", says coach Mickey VanDerwerker. "So it's difficult. Teams just don't get to go, you have to be good at this."
A third Bedford County team, from Forest Middle School, will also compete at the world finals.
