LITHONIA, Ga. — A Georgia teen has “doodled” her way to a win in a national competition run by Google.
Her submission is featured as Google’s logo on the site’s homepage Tuesday.
She will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship, and Arabia Mountain will be awarded $50,000 to establish or improve a computer lab or technology program, according to Google.
Popo was previously chosen as the competition's representative from Georgia before an online vote declared her the national winner.
The contest directed K-12 students to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme “When I grow up, I hope…” Popo’s doodle is called “Once You Get It, Give It Back.”
Originally from Colombia, Popo came to the United States as a young child, which is when she began drawing, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported earlier this summer.
Her artwork often documents immigrants' experiences and struggles and has already earned her a lot of acclaim. Last year, she was the grand prize winner in the Congressional Arts Competition.
