Student a state finalist in Google contest

Student a state finalist in Google contest

Congratulations to 5th grade Cedar View student Katelyn Bartholomew, for being chosen as one of 400 state finalists for the 2010 Doodle for Google contest.

“This is quite impressive considering there were 33,000 entries from all over the country,” said Vicki Burke, Katelyn’s art teacher. Katelyn had to redesign the Google logo based on the theme…”If I could do anything I would…” Her entry spoke of how she would save trees because of their importance to our world.

Burke worked with students on their own time for several weeks this winter preparing their drawings for the contest. She was only allowed to submit 6 entries from all the students who participated, and Katelyn’s was one of the six.

“I was suprised when I heard my name announced in school, and how far I got in the contest,” Katelyn said. “I was inspired by my Aunt Kathy because she encouraged my artistic talent.”

Google chose two entries from each state per grade level. There were four grade levels. Regional finalists were then selected from the state finalists, and voters selected the national winner.

Katelyn is looking forward to entering next year’s contest, but for now is excited how well this year turned out.
