A little girl from Christ the King School in Rutland was one of the regional finalists in the Google Doodle competition to find a new doodle for its search page. The 9-year-old Esa Anderson doodled an awesome picture which is representative of our wonderful state. To read more about this little girl and what’s behind the doodle click here. I think that we should get behind her and vote, vote, vote for this wonderful doodle. Voting is open from May 18th through May 25th. She is the regional finalist in the K-3 age group.  The winner will receive their doodle on on May 27th, 2010. The National winner also receives a $15,000 college scholarship, a laptop computer, a trip to Google’s office in NYC for the May 26th winner announcement, a Wacon digital tablet and a t-shirt with their design printed on it. Oh, and the winner’s school receives a $25,000 technology grant.

Three National Finalists each win Laptop Computers and a trip to the Google NYC office for the May 26th event, in addition to a Wacom digital design table and their own design on a t-shirt.

Each of the 40 Regional Finalists will win a trip to the Google New York office for an event on May 26, 2010 and a t-shirt printed with their doodles on it. All 40 Regional Finalists will also have their doodle displayed in a public exhibit at the Smithsonian’s, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for 6 weeks after the announcement event.

In the Grade 7-9 division, another Vermonter has taken the title of regional finalist. A 13-year-old from Essex, Vermont won with this doodle.
