Middle School student chosen state winner in Doodle for Google competition, vote today

Google announced University of Chicago Laboratory Schools Middle School student Eva Neaves the Illinois state winner in the 13th annual Doodle for Google competition, a contest open to K–12 students across the United States to design a Google doodle inspired by the theme “I am strong because…” Eva’s doodle was selected from thousands of entries received this year.

In the next stage of the contest, the public is invited to vote for their favorite Doodle from the 54 state and territory winners in order to help determine which students will go on to become one of the five National Finalists.

Lab invites the public to vote for Eva’s design on the Doodle for Google website. When you land on the voting website, click “Vote Now,” then “Grades 6–7,” and then “Illinois.” Voting ends this Friday, May 14, at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

Google will announce these five National Finalists later this month, one of which will go on to become the National Winner and have their Doodle featured on the Google homepage for a day.

National Finalists will each win a $5,000 college scholarship, Google hardware, and fun Googley swag swag.

The National Winner will take home a $30,000 college scholarship and his or her school will receive a $50,000 technology package for their school/non-profit organization.
