A talented Gretna-based student could soon have her art on the Google homepage for hundreds of millions to see. Google is announcing the 55 State and Territory winners in its 15th annual Doodle for Google competition, a contest where K-12 students across the United States have the opportunity to create their own version of the Google logo inspired by the prompt “I am grateful for....”.
Annalise Perez, an 8th grader from Young Audiences at Burmaster, is one of the 55 U.S/ State and Territory Winners with her Doodle, “The Quiet of My Room”. Annalise's Doodle was selected from thousands of entries received this year.
To help their favorites succeed, everyone across the U,S. can vote for their favorite Doodle from the 54 State and Territory Winners. Voting will be open from May 18-25, and the public vote will determine the Five National Finalists (one in each grade group). Google will announce these five National Finalists in late May, one of whom will have their Doodle featured on the Google homepage for a day.
The National Winner will take home a $30,000 college scholarship, and their school will receive a $50,000 tech package to establish or improve a computer lab or technology program.
