The Doodle 4 Google contest is held each year and it allows kids from grades K-12 to create their own unique Google logo drawing and enter it to be featured on the Google homepage for 24 hours! This year, the theme for the Doodle 4 Google contest is “If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place.” And the public gets to vote for their favorite Google Doodle drawing. Other than being featured on the Google front page, the winner also gets a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school, so this is a big deal! Now, one person from Alabama has her drawing in the running!
Ansley Grider, from Fort Payne Middle School, is one of 49 people that has their drawings in the running for the grand prize. Ansley’s drawing is about a cure for cancer, she describes her drawing by saying “I would invent a cure for cancer because it would save so many lives. It would give millions of people the chance to live, to love, and to make countless contributions to society that would make the world a better place.” Ansley’s selection of a cure for cancer was inspired by her father’s cancer diagnosis in 2012. And there would be nothing better than seeing this Google Doodle win!
