Doodle4Google

The teacher who handles the classes for the Gifted program at my children's school gave us the information about the Doodle4Google contest that is being held every year. This is my daughter's first year in the Gifted program so she jumped on the opportunity to enter the said contest.  This year's theme is  "If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place..."

One talented young artist (grades K-12) will see her/his  artwork on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school.
My daughter was very excited  upon reading the prize for  the school. She does not even care about  the individual prize but  she wants to win it for the school.  It makes me proud of our little girl because she wants to help her school.  
Her entry was about creating a cure for cancer. Below is her essay.
The world would be a much better place  if we could stop cancer from taking so many lives each year.  Technology has made it easier to detect  and treat but  we still have a long way to go.  One life lost is one too many.
Her entry was inspired of the fact that my husband's family have lost lives of love ones  from cancer-related  diseases.  She's sad that she did not get to meet her grandmother (my husband's Mom and her Uncle, my husband's brother).  

I told her  when we sent her  entry that even if she  gets to be included in the 250  that the judges will be selected, it is already a good thing.  But when Google called us and informed us that she is the State of West Virginia Winner, we were  delighted.  She is one of the 50 finalists now that will compete to  hopefully be included in the top 5 finalists.

Please help my daughter realize her dream  of helping her school  by hopefully winning this contest.  It is a shot in the dark but  with your help,  it is possible.  The 50 designs will be  displayed at Google's website  for the public to cast their votes.  The above design is my daughter's entry,  she is representing the State of West Virginia.

THANK YOU all so much for casting your votes!

  16. This is such a nice program. One of the things I like most about my son being in the gifted program is the many interesting ways the teachers have to explain concepts and help the children learn.
