Stephanie Lee from Lantana, a third-grade art student of Kelley Quinn at E.P. Rayzor Elementary, poses with her national-winning entry in the annual “Doodle for Google” contest.
Stephanie’s artwork was selected as one of only two finalists in the kindergarten through third grade division to represent Texas in the nationwide contest.
More than 107,000 entries from all 50 states were submitted with Google awarding one winning student – Matteo Lopez of San Francisco – a $15,000 scholarship and the corresponding school at $25,000 technology grant.
The entries were judged on artistic merit, creativity, how well the theme was expressed and its adherence to the supporting statement.
Judges included Whoopi Goldberg, “Garfield” creator Jim Davis, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, and others.
