Doodle 4 Google national winner!

The results are in from last week's public vote for its favorite doodle from the Doodle 4 Google art competition, in which Google invited students in grades K-12 to design the Google logo around the theme "What if...?"

Today, they're pleased to announce the winner: Grace (Suryung) Moon, a 6th grader from Canyon Middle School in Castro Valley, California. Her creation, "Up in the Clouds" was selected for its artistry and creativity as well as for its interpretation of the "What if...?" theme. Grace's doodle will replace Google's regular logo on their homepage tomorrow, May 22nd, and Grace will be awarded a $10,000 college scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for her school in recognition of this achievement.

Congratulations also go to the three national finalists. They were selected as having the best doodle in their grade groups and will each receive a laptop computer:

Grades K-3
Spencer Norton ~ Ashbrook Elementary School, Lumberton, NJ

Grades 7-9

Rebecca Olene ~ Pioneer Ridge Freshmen Center, Carver, Minnesota

Grades 10-12

Gabriel Kitzman ~ Elbert School Dist. #200, Kiowa, Colorado

To celebrate the winner and all of the talented finalists, Google held an awards ceremony at the Googleplex for the 40 regional winners today. The finalists and their families joined them for a fun-filled day with activities ranging from face painting to a doodling master class with their own Chief Google Doodler Dennis Hwang.
