Wickman Wildcats are SoCal Odyssey State Champions!

Congratulations to our award-winning Wildcats of Wickman Elementary! This brilliant team of 4th and 5th grade students is advancing to the Virtual World Finals after capturing 1st place in the state's Odyssey of the Mind competition.  Participating in this year's annual international problem-solving competition where students K-12 organize into teams to solve problems in the most creative way possible, the Wildcats tackled Problem 3: OMER and the Beanstalk. 

Judged for their creativity on how they combine classic characters and stories to teach a life lesson, students wrote a script, designed costumes and built props and filming sets to produce an 8-minute skit. 

Best of luck in the Virtual World Finals Emma, Jack, Reyansh, Sharon, Iris and Tanishka! And a huge THANK YOU to coaches Ruby Chang and Pauline Wong for supporting our Wildcats as they completed their tasks and competed remotely!
