Picture worth 1,000 words? Google Doodle wins $15,000 scholarship & more!

submitted on May 27, 2010 by HouTex in "Member's Lounge"
A 9-year-old 3rd-grader from Missouri created the winning design that was selected from more than 33,000 student submissions from all over the country in the Doodle 4 Google competition. She received a $15,000 college scholarship, a netbook computer and a $25,000 technology grant for a new computer lab at her school. Her doodle was also featured on the Google.com homepage today (May 27, 2010) for millions of people to enjoy all across the country.

This year, a group of "Expert Jurors" - well-known illustrators, cartoonists and animators from organizations like Disney, The Sesame Street Workshop, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates and Peanuts and Pixar Animation Studios - helped select the 40 finalist doodles.


The Doodle 4 Google competition invites K-12 students to work their artistic will upon the Google homepage logo. This year's theme was "If I Could Do Anything, I Would …"

Read about the top 40 Regional Finalists and their entries here - http://www.google.com/doodle4google/vote.html , and state finalists here - http://www.google.com/doodle4g.....state.html .

IMHO, these are good! I imagine it was hard to pick a winner!

    That's an awesome picture. I'm guessing the high school kids that entered are kicking themselves for getting beat by a 9 year old girl though. Mr Green

    I think she may have won partly because she chose to draw a rainforest habitat and wanted to ("if she could do anything, she would") save the rainforest. There were quite a few that were good artwork but chose other themes besides saving the environment.
