CASTLETON Two Vermont teams took top honors in the Odyssey of the Mind 2008 World Finals competition last week. The Hayes Foundation (Castleton) placed first in Odyssey Road Rally, Division III (High-School). Twenty-three teams from across Vermont attended the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals competition at the University of Maryland in College Park. Over 650 teams from across the U.S. and 170 teams representing 30 countries participated in the event. Having a single Vermont team place in the top three teams in the World is rare, having two teams take first place is amazing and is unprecedented in the 29 year history of Vermont Odyssey of the Mind. A team from Ludlow Elementary School (Ludlow) also took fourth place in The Eccentrics, Division II.
