Stilwell student named one of Google's state winners in the Doodle 4 Google competition.
On Wednesday, Google announced the 50 state winners in its sixth annual Doodle 4 Google competition. The contest is open to K-12 students across the Unites States to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme “My Best Day Ever...”
Jenna Hooper, a fourth grader from Maryetta School, is one of the winners selected from more than 130,000 students who submitted entries this year. All 50 state winners will have their doodle displayed in a special exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from May 22 - July 14.
Starting Wednesday, the public will be able to vote for their favorite doodle from the 50 state winners and help select five national finalists (one per grade group). Voting will be open from May 1 to May 10 on this site: http://www.google.com/doodle4google/vote.html.
The public vote will determine the five national finalists, one in each grade group.
Google will then announce the five national finalists and one of them as the national winner on May 22 at an awards ceremony at its New York City office, which all 50 state winners will be invited to. The winning student's doodle will be displayed on the Google homepage on May 23 and will receive a
$30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his/her school.
