• Bookmarks: 6

ST. CROIX — A talented student on St. Croix could soon have his art on the Google homepage for millions to see, said the Dept. of Education Tuesday. Google is announcing the 54 State and Territory winners in its 13th annual Doodle for Google competition, a contest open to K-12 students across the United States to design a Google Doodle inspired by the theme “I am strong because…”

Armani Harvey, a fourth grader at Pearl B. Larsen PreK-8 School, is one of the 54 State and Territory winners across the country. Armani’s doodle was selected from thousands of entries received this year, D.O.E. said.

In the next stage of the contest, Google will invite the public to vote for their favorite Doodle from the 54 State and Territory Winners, in order to help determine which students will go on to become one of the five National Finalists. Voting is open from May 10-14 on the Doodle for Google website, doodle4google.com.

Google will announce the five National Finalists later this month, one of which will go on to become the National Winner and have their Doodle featured on the Google homepage for a day.

National Finalists will each win a $5,000 college scholarship, Google hardware, and fun Googley swag swag.

The National Winner will take home a $30,000 college scholarship and his or her school will receive a $50,000 technology package for their school/non-profit organization.

If you have any questions or would like to speak with a Google representative about the contest, please send an email to [email protected].
