Madelyn Kieh, a Yeadonite and Penn Wood High School Freshman, is Pennsylvania’s State Finalist in the “DOODLE 4 GOOGLE” competition!
What is Doodle 4 Google??
The Google logo at www.google.com changes into something different each day. Google refers to them as “doodles.” Google holds an annual “Doodle 4 Google” contest where students may submit a doodle of a specific theme selected by the company. This year’s contest theme was “What inspires me?”
Madelyn Kieh submitted the winning doodle for the State of Pennsylvania. Madelyn’s doodle shows how her sister Marilyn, who is also her guardian, inspired her to develop her artistic talents as a young girl. Google selected winners from 53 states and territories.
Madelyn’s doodle was selected over hundreds of other submissions from Pennsylvania and now advances to the National level. Four National Finalists and one National Winner will be selected. All will have their doodles featured on the Doodle 4 Google gallery. National Finalists will receive a $5,000 college scholarship, trip to Google Headquarters in California, Google hardware, and “fun Googley swag.” The National Winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, $50,000 technology package for their school, in addition to the other prizes that also will be won by the Finalists.
