Other Information

  • When founded, the program was known as "Olympics of the Mind." In the early 1980s, the International Olympic Committee enforced violations of its trademarked "Olympic" name, and forced the program to change its name. The new name selected was "Odyssey of the Mind" to fit the "OM" acronym in use at the time.
  • After debate over the for profit nature of Creative Competitions, the controlling corporation for Odyssey of the Mind Inc., a non-profit organization Destination ImagiNation was created by members of the Odyssey of the Mind Inc. board of directors. These are the two largest programs of their type with both offering over 30 years of experience in the preparation of divergent, open-ended activities for students of all ages and cultures.

Famous quotes containing the word information:

    Rejecting all organs of information ... but my senses, I rid myself of the Pyrrhonisms with which an indulgence in speculations hyperphysical and antiphysical so uselessly occupy and disquiet the mind.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    On the breasts of a barmaid in Sale
    Were tattooed the prices of ale;
    And on her behind
    For the sake of the blind
    Was the same information in Braille.
