Forest Hills OM teams take high honors at World Finals

This month, Forest Hills Public Schools’ Odyssey of the Mind teams competed on the world stage. The top six finishers in each problem and division were recognized before a crowd of over 10,000 attendees. Congratulations to Thornapple Elementary School for earning a third place winner in the Division 1 Performance problem. The Forest Hills Central High School’s Structure team overcame destructive humidity to capture fourth in their hotly contested problem. The Forest Hills Northern High School’s Technical team clearly had some chemistry going with the judges, whose strong positive reaction to their performance helped earn them a sixth place finish.
