Braille Works is a proud sponsor of 16 Odyssey of the Mind teams in the Buccaneer Bay Regional Competition.

This year some of our employees and their family stepped up to volunteer as judges and coaches in the creative competition, held at Strawberry Crest High School in Dover, Florida.  Jeff Frcho, Collin Frcho (High School Student- not pictured) and Ken Fioritto served as competition judges.  Christine Sket served as a coach for 3-teams with the support of our CFO, Robert Sket (not pictured).

Of the 16-teams Braille Works sponsors, seven teams are moving on to the state-wide competition. States are held at the University of Central Florida; the competition is on April 11, 2015. Braille Works is proud of all of the teams that competed in regionals.  They all stretched their minds, displayed amazing teamwork and dedication to the solving of a complex problem, each in a unique manner.

Braille Works sees value in creative problem-solving programs like Odyssey of the Mind. These programs help develop a future generation of inventors and problem-solvers.  It also takes the dedication of many volunteers and supporters to keep these programs in our communities.  We appreciate our employees and the many dedicated volunteers, officials and coaches that make these programs possible.
