Waterville Student In The Running For Google Award + Please Vote For Her!

A fifth grader from Waterville’s Albert Hall School has created a “Google Doodle” and is now a finalist in Google’s national “Doodle 4 Google” contest!

Inga Zimba took this year’s theme, “If I could do one thing to make the world a better place” and created the drawing above.  Inga’s doodle depicts a bee buzzing around its hive and how that bee would see the Google logo. The drawing is titled, “Save A Google Bees.”  The “robotic” bee and its friends were created to scour Maine’s countryside, going from hive to hive gathering information for scientists to analyze in order to save Maine’s bee population from decreasing.

Over 100,000 doodles were submitted and Inga is now one of ten finalists in her grade group (grades 4 & 5).  She will go to Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California, next month to find out if her doodle is the winner!

If Inga Zimba’s “Google Doodle” wins, she’ll receive a $30,000 scholarship and her school will receive a $50,000 grant to upgrade their computer lab.  She will also get to work with Google’s professional animators to produce and animate her image.

Go here to vote for Inga’s image!!!
