Would Love It If You Could Vote...

Hi Everyone...we have exciting news in our family. My 8 year old niece, Lindsey, has made it to the finals of the nationwide contest for Doodle 4 Google. Woo Hoo for Lindsey!!

Doodle 4 Google is a competition for K-12 students to draw and redesign Google’s homepage logo for the world to see.  One winner will receive a $15,000 college scholarship and $25,000 technology grant for their school.  For more info, see the Doodle 4 Google's Home page here.



The theme for the competition is "what I'd like to do someday".

The artwork below is what Lindsey drew for the competition. She wants to be an artist in the future and she is certainly on her way...Great job Lindsey!!

Lindsey is one of 40 nation wide finalist in 4 age groups. She was chosen out of 107,000 entries. She is in the age group K-3 and her artwork is in Region 1...Lindsey Coffua from Connecticut.

The voting starts now through May 13th. She has already won a trip to the Google office in New York for the awards ceremony on May 19th and her artwork will be in the Whitney Museum.

If you could just take a moment and click HERE to view her artwork and click the "Vote for this Doodle" button, you would make one little girl very happy (and one auntie too!!)

Thanks so much for taking the time to help,
Karen

  24. I voted for Lindsey. She is very creative. We have a little artist in our family too, my 7 year old granddaughter. She is in the first grade. A water color of a sunset that she painted at school was selected to be on display at the Frist Museum. We attended a reception in her honor (as well as other young artist) at the museum with our Mayor last month. She was thrilled beyond belief.

  32. She got my vote (sss). And speaking as an Elementary school teacher of 23 years and an art major...THAT ONE HAS TALENT...8 YEARS OLD..oh yes she does have talent. I hope her school is meeting those needs. The arts are often neglected!
