Meryl Liu, a fourth-grade Cypress Creek Elementary student in Port Orange, was named the Doodle 4 Google state winner for Florida. The national winner will be selected by the public voting online for their favorite doodle. The national winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school.
Doodle 4 Google is an art competition open to all K-12 students in the United States to create their own Google doodle. This year’s theme was “My Best Day Ever.”
Meryl’s drawing is a self-portrait of her spending the day in the forest with endangered birds. Meryl wants to “study them in order to save them.” Her entry was one of more than 130,000 entries nationwide.
Meryl will travel with her family to New York City for the final awards ceremony on May 22, where the national winner will be announced. All 50 state winners will receive a t-shirt printed with their doodles on it and will also have their doodle displayed in a special exhibition at the American Museum of National History in New York City.
