Minnesota High Schooler a Finalist in Google Doodle Competition
The Doodle for Google competition is going on right now. Voting opened May 7th, and is open through May 18th for picking the 5 finalists from States and Territories. The top 5 voted for doodles will then go on to be national finalists in the competition. There are 5 different categories the drawings fell in based on age:
Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
4th and 5th Grade
6th and 7th Grade
8th and 9th Grade
and 10th- 12th Grade.
The drawings are being judged on artistic skill, creativity, and theme communication. The overall winner will be featured as a Google Doodle on Google's home page! In addition to that the winner will receive a $30,000 scholarship, a $50,000 technology package for their school/non-profit organization, a trip to Google HQ, and some fun Google gear.
The identities of the State and Territory finalists are being kept a secret, but our Minnesotan that is in the competition is in the 10th - 12th grade category. It is a really beautiful tribute to their great-grandmother who never shied away from hard work and inspires the artist to do the same. Cast your vote to give Minnesota some Google representation!!
