Las Vegas Student Named One of Google’s State Winners in Doodle 4 Google Competition

Public Voting Now Open to Select National Finalists

Las Vegas, NV–A student at Southwest Career & Technical Academy is one step closer to having her art put on the Google homepage for hundreds of millions to see. Today, Google announced the 50 state winners in its sixth annual Doodle 4 Google competition, a contest open to K-12 students across the Unites States to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme “My Best Day Ever…” Zhe Zhang, a student from Southwest Career and Technical Academy, is one of the state winners selected from more than 130,000 students who submitted entries this year.    All 50 state winners will have their doodle displayed in a special exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Southwest Academy will be hosting a surprise assembly for Zhe Zhang WEDNESDAY, MAY 1st, at 12:30PM to announce her selection as this year’s winner.  Will you be there to help surprise her?  

WHO:  Zhe Zhang, student at Southwest Academy–SHHH it’s a surprise!
WHAT:   Google will be taking part in an event at a school in Las Vegas. We’ll be awarding the Nevada winner of a Google student art competition called Doodle 4 Google.

Also, starting Wednesday, the public will be able to vote for their favorite doodle from the 50 state winners and help select five national finalists (one per grade group).  Voting will be open from May 1 to May 10 on this site: The public vote will determine the five national finalists, one in each grade group.

Google will then announce the five national finalists and one of them as the national winner on May 22 at an awards ceremony at its New York City office, which all 50 state winners will be invited to. The winning student’s doodle will be displayed on the Google homepage on May 23 and will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his/her school.

We’d like to thank our guest judges, who helped Google employees narrow the submissions down to the 50 state winners. This year’s guest judges include Katie Couric, Brian Henson, and Chris Sanders.
