Tournament of Minds (ToM) is a problem solving program for teams of students from primary, intermediate and secondary years. Tournament's aim is to enhance the potential of our youth by developing diverse skills, enterprise, time management, and the discipline to work collaboratively within a challenging and competitive environment.
In order to participate in the Tournament of Minds, you will need a 'Facilitator Log In Account'.
An account, created for the Facilitator, will be associated with a school. This starts with an 'Activation Code'.
The Activation Code, unique to each school, allows us to match your account with a school in our database. The create a new Facilitator account you will need to have the school's Activation Code.
When you've created your Facilitator Account, you can then proceed to Register your school for the Tournament.
If you are a 'new' Facilitator for this year, you can create your account using the Activation Code or the previous Facilitator's log in details to create a new Log In Account.
If your are a Facilitator at more than one school, you should contact your branch to add your account to other schools.
Who can create a Facilitator Account?
