Doodle 4 Google

Doh! How did I miss this?

Yesterday Google announced the winner of this year's Doodle 4 Google contest, in which kids in grades K-12 are challenged to design a Google logo around a particular theme. I love the overall winner, but--even without seeing the K-3 winner, I'm pretty sure that Hannah could have cleaned up in that age group. (Why yes, I am a tad biased. Does it show?)

The Grand Prize for the overall winner, 6th grader Grace (Suryung) Moon, was a 10,000$ scholarship and a 25,000$ technology grant for her school. The winner in each grade group gets a laptop computer.

Someone remind me about this next year. Our school could use that technology grant.

Thomas and I just interviewed the Google person who was in charge of PR for this today!

wow to how awesome the finalists were?

wow to the prizes?

or wow to my overly confident, only-a-mother would say that: "Hannah could have cleaned up in that age group" ?
