Carthage YEP awards $1,000 grant to Junior High ‘Odyssey’

The Carthage Youth Empowerment Project made a $1,000 grant to the Carthage Junior High “Odyssey of the Mind” group.

The grant will help the Junior High students pay for travel costs associated with the “Odyssey” state-level competition in Rolla this weekend and possibly for a trip to the world competition in Iowa this month.

The Carthage YEP grant and the “Odyssey” project were featured in a recent edition of the Carthage Press. Click here to read the article.
