NY Region 12 Tournament – Virtual for 2020/21 season

All Odyssey of the Mind Regional Tournaments in New York will be virtual online events for the 2020/21 season.
There will be no in-person Tournament at our main campus this year. Teams will submit a video of their long-term performance and it will be judged by a team of experienced volunteers from across the state. Our Region 12 teams will still get the usual ribbons and certificates for all team members. Winning teams will also get team medals and a trophy as in years past. The Region 12 Virtual Tournament results will be announced approximately April 2, 2021.
