Mind Games has two goals: to promote intellectual skills through friendly competition and to build the self-confidence of the contestants. There are no losers in Mind Games! Everyone selected to participate is a winner. The real object of the games is for the students to compete skillfully and cooperate as a team to do their best.
Each school has 2 teams consisting of 7 students. One team is made up of 2nd & 3rd grade students and the other is made up of 4th & 5th grade students. This year’s competition will take place at the Arthur Ashe Center on April 20th and 21st.
There are 4 categories for the competition:
