2023 Buccaneer Bay Regional Results

We had a beautiful day at Mulberry High School on Saturday February 25th.  We had 61 compete (Pinellas, Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee and Hardee counties) and 40 are advancing to our 2023 Florida Odyssey of the Mind State Tournament being held at the Orange County Convention Center (West Concourse) on April 8, 2023.


  • Michael Young, Mulberry High School’s principal
  • Todd Thuma, Engineering Instructor are greatly appreciated for their support in set-up and facilitation of the competition site. 
  • The custodial staff at MHS did a great job of keeping the site free of trash and keeping bathrooms in working order. 
  • Colonel Craig Manville, MHS JROTC Senior Army Instructor who organized his troop to serve as parking attendants to ensure the safety and parking for the event that hosted nearly a thousand spectators, students, coaches, judges and kids. In addition to parking, the JROTC also sold snacks and drinks. 
  • The food trucks participating provided a nice option to allow more time to fellowship and observe other team performances and provided a great treat for our Buc Bay Omers. 
  • Problem Captains and Regional Board members, who are the framework that keeps this competition day going and along with all their judges make this opportunity possible for kids to creatively compete to demonstrate that KIDS CAN BE PROBLEM SOLVERS!:
