Doodle 4 Google National Finalist at Island Avenue Elementary School!
Posted 02/10/2016 04:09PM
The Madison Public Schools are thrilled to announce that Micah Linton-Smith, a fourth grader from Island Avenue School, is the state winner and national finalist for the Doodle 4 Google contest. Once a year Google invites students in the United States to use their artistic talents to redesign Google's homepage logo for millions to see. This year, Google asked students to exercise their creative imaginations around the theme, "What makes me...me." Micah chose to express his creativity by taking apart a computer and using the pieces to create the Google logo to express that technology makes Micah, Micah. Out of all the submissions Google received, Micah was selected as Connecticut's state winner!
Now Micah needs your help! Everyone around the country can head to the Doodle 4 Google site to vote for Micah's doodle to be on the Google homepage for an entire day. The National Winner of the competition will receive a $30,000 academic scholarship, $50,000 tech grant for their school and a trip to Google headquarters. We hope everyone will go to the site and cast a vote in support of Micah!
