Wichita Christian School creative problem-solving team headed to international competition

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A creative group of students from Wichita Falls is working to make their way to the world finals.

Students from Wichita Christian School have dreams to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind tournament.

The international creative problem-solving competition is set to take place at Iowa State University next month.

This is the first year for Wichita Christian School to enter a team and their ability to think outside the box won them first place at state.

"This is the very first year for this program where a small school (could compete) and I don't think that there were a lot of outside expectations from the organization as a whole and we exceeded everything that we set out to do," coach, Courtney Cummings said.

The world competition is set for May 23 through May 27. If you would like to help with funding to ensure these kids can compete, click here.
