One local elementary school student is on her way to becoming “Google famous” after her creativity gained her national attention from the major search-engine.
Shahsi Arnold, a fifth-grader at East Silver Spring Elementary school was named a State finalist in the Doodle 4 Google competition.
Her drawing titled “Imagination Transportation” is one of 10 State winners in grades 4-5 in the U.S., and was entered in response to this year’s Google Doodle theme: “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place…”
After an online public voting period, which ends on May 9, one young artist will see his or her 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.
