Talented Seattle Girl Doodles for Google
9-year-old Corinne Manning is Washington state’s finalist in this year’s contest
Thanks to Google’s “Doodle 4 Google,” competition, a talented Seattle elementary-school student could soon have her art featured on Google’s homepage for hundreds of millions to see.
“Doodle 4 Google” is an annual contest that encourages K-12 students across the United States to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme "What Inspires Me." The national winner will be announced June 8 and will take home a $30,000 college scholarship, plus his or her school will receive a $50,000 Google for Education grant toward starting or improving a computer lab or technology program.
Corinne Manning, 9, from Seattle's McDonald International Elementary School, is Washington state’s finalist in this year’s contest. Corinne's doodle, “The Curious Cat,” was selected out of thousands of entries received from Washington students. Corinne’s doodle reflects how she is inspired by one of her favorite animals. Says Corinne, “I like that cats are curious about the world around them but can just as easily let things go. I also wish that I could jump and almost always land on my feet.”
Everyone in the U.S. can vote for their favorite doodle from the 53 state winners. Voting will be open May 7-21.
