Student Finalists Picked in Doodle 4 Google Contest
This year's Doodle 4 Google competition's theme was "If I Could Do Anything, I Would..." Over 33,000 students from grades K through 12 entered, and from now until May 25 you can vote here for your favorite artwork out of the top 40 finalists.
On May 26, the company will announce the 4 national finalists, as well as the national winner, who receives a $25,000 grant for their school's computer lab, $15,000 college scholarship, laptop, digital design tablet, and a T-shirt with their doodle on it.
Alex Engleman, a 17-year-old student from Hedgesville High in West Virginia, is hoping Google users will see her "Let's Go To Japan" (pictured) entry when visiting the search engine on May 27.
Alex explains her drawing, which took a few days of planning and almost a week to paint, by saying, "I would love to go to Japan because I want to see and explore its architecture, like Tokyo Tower. I also want to master the style of art, both traditional and digital. I also would love to eat the food."
