A talented student in Alabaster, Alabama could soon have her art on the Google homepage for millions to see. 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...”

 

Isabelle Carrozza, a 12th grader from Thompson High School in Alabaster, is one of the 54 State and Territory Winners across the US. Isabelle's doodle was selected from thousands of entries received this year. 

 

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 5 National Finalists. Voting will be open from May 10th-May 14th on the Doodle for Google website: doodle4google.com

 

Google will announce these 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. 

 

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.
