Iowa State University
May 27 – May 30
Approximately 850 teams from around the world will compete in the Odyssey of the Mind 2020 World Finals. This will be our 41st World Finals and our 11th time visiting Iowa State University. The competition emphasizes creativity and teamwork and continues to be the largest international creative problem-solving competition in the world.
Millions of Students work hard all year to perfect their original solutions to OotM problems and demonstrating their work in competition within their areas. Few advance to World Finals, but everyone should be proud of their creative journey!
Best wishes to teams, coaches, and volunteers — have fun in Iowa! For those attending, keep an eye on this page for updates. For those enjoying from home, stay tuned as well to see pictures, live feeds, and videos of all the World Finals fun.
