HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WIN $4,000 AT 2018 SCHOLASTIC OLYMPICS

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Students at Parkdale and Eleanor Roosevelt high schools won first
place in U.S. History and math at the 8th annual Scholastic Olympics at the University of
Maryland (5/5), while a homeschooled youth and a private school student topped the speech and
spelling categories.

Roosevelt sophomore Marvellous Ogunsola dominated the math competition to win the $500
cash prize. The math-a-thon, which is considered the signature competition, is played similar to
the popular television Jeopardy game show where contestants select categories of an array of
answers and then provide the questions. Last year, Ogunsola won first place in spelling as she
wrapped up her first year of high school.

Ogunsola faced serious challenges from Di Chen, a junior at Northwestern High School who
won the $300 second place award and Tara Olowolayemo, also of Roosevelt who came in third
and won $200. [READ MORE]
