***The California scholar varsity jacket patch is only available for California (SoCal) Odyssey of the Mind high school scholars that meet the application requirements.***
To acknowledge SoCal OMers who have excelled academically, SoCal OotM offer a free Scholar Varsity jacket patch. Any high school student (grades 9-12) participating in California South Odyssey of the Mind can apply, but only one patch can be awarded. Please make sure that you fill out the application completely, and provide all of the required documentation. The patch will be mailed out as soon as the application is approved, and your award will be acknowledged at the association tournament.
In order to qualify for the patch, you must have earned a 3.5 weighted GPA for two or more semesters, and submit one signed letter of support, from a school counselor or Odyssey coach. Your GPA will be verified by submitting a copy of your transcript (can be unofficial). Materials submitted for review will not be returned.
