Cato-Meridian Middle School student Rylee Napolitano wins Odyssey pin contest
Cato-Meridian sixth grade student Rylee Napolitano’s creativity and talent will be on display at this year’s Region 11 Odyssey of the Mind Competition, as the pin she designed will be presented to each student at the competition.
Napolitano’s design features an octopus. She chose an octopus because it reminded her of the teamwork that is needed to succeed in the competition.
“Each tentacle of an octopus represents the seven teammates and coach on a team,” Napolitano said. “The same way the tentacles work together to hunt, our team works together to solve long-term and spontaneous problems.”
Her design also highlights this year as the 40th anniversary of Odyssey of the Mind. The Region 11 competition is slated for Saturday, March 21.
