Stilwell Student's 'Doodle' Chosen in National Competition

Posted: Updated:

A Green Country elementary student is a finalist this week in the Doodle 4 Google national competition.

Maryetta Public Schools student Jenna Hooper was chosen as a finalist in the 4th-5th grade group for Google's drawing competition. Hooper, a resident of Stilwell, was chosen from a total of over 130,000 entries.

According to Google's website, students from "Hilo, Hawaii to Falmouth Maine, our 50 State Winners hail from every corner of the United States." And this year Google asked students to exercise their creative imaginations around the theme, “My Best Day Ever…”

One talented student artist will see their artwork appear on the Google homepage, receive a $30,000 college scholarship, and a $50,000 technology grant for their school. Internet users can log onto the competition page and vote five times for each doodle per grade group.

Hooper's drawing is competing against students from various states including South Dakota, Montana and New York. She titled her drawing "Painting a Tie-Dye World."

"In the future, my best day ever would be to paint a 'Tie-Dye' world! I would use my imagination to create works of art that burst with color everywhere! How fun would that be!"

Voters have until May 10 to vote for their favorite drawing. More information about the competition can be found on their website
