Posted February 9th, 2016
Battle Ground High School freshman Holly Halberg learned at a surprise school assembly that she is the Washington state winner of the Doodle 4 Google contest. Halberg has advanced to the public voting round of the K-12 competition to create a Doodle that will be on the Google homepage for a day.
The public can vote through Feb. 22 for a finalist in each grade category at http://www.google.com/doodle4google (find Halberg’s in the “Grades 8-9″ category). Four national finalists will each receive a $5,000 college scholarship, and the national winner will get a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education grant for his or her school. The national winner’s Doodle will be on Google.com for a day.
Halberg created a silhouette that tells the world “What makes me…me,” the theme for this year’s competition. She took inspiration from the things she enjoys in her life, from her little sister and living in the Pacific Northwest, to reading and photography. Holly entered the competition after Alder Suttles, her art teacher at BGHS last semester, asked students to create a Doodle as a class assignment.
