Aubree with doodle

Aubree Pittman, who just finished seventh grade at Fort Zumwalt North Middle School, has won the state prize in the 11th annual Doodle for Google competition. Now she is among 53 artists in the running for five National Finalists spots. Pittman’s seventh grade classmates helped her celebrate at a surprise assembly the day before school let out for summer. During the assembly, her doodle was unveiled and she was given a shirt and tote bag with her doodle on them, as well as a brand new Chromebook computer.

Artists were asked to submit their Google Doodle with the theme: “When I grow up, I hope …” Pittman’s doodle, “Colorful, Cleaner Oceans” was chosen from thousands of submissions received this year. “

Online voting will be open from June 3rd-June 7th on this site:​ and the public vote will determine the Five National Finalists (one in each grade group). Google will announce these five National Finalists in June, one of which will have their Doodle featured on the Google homepage for a day.  

The National Winner will take home a $30,000 college scholarship and his or her school will receive a $50,000 tech package towards the establishment or improvement of a computer lab or technology program.
