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 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 …"

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.
