Ore Adedeji

Washington Episcopal School first-grader Ore Adedeji, age 6, was named a winner of the 2012 Bethesda Literary Festival’s Youth Writing Contest. She was one of 10 award recipients selected from more than 700 entries. The topic of her essay, “If I were a grown-up for a day,” discussed her proposal to lower taxes. “I hope to become President of the USA or be a famous singer when I grow up,” said Ore. This summer Ore will attend a gifted and talented writing program at Montgomery College. She, her family and her teacher, will attend the Essay Reading & Awards Reception on April 22 at the Doubletree Bethesda Hotel.
