West Oak Middle School Student Wins “Doodle for Google” Competition for State of Illinois… Mundelein Residents Invited to Vote in National Competition

Marsha Tagala, a talented 5th grade artist from West Oak Middle School in Mundelein, recently won the Illinois “Doodle for Google” competition and soon her artwork could be on the Google homepage for hundreds of millions to see. Google is announcing the 53 state and territory winners in its 11th Annual “Doodle for Google” competition. This contest is open to K-12 students across the United States to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme “When I grow up, I hope...”.

Marsha’s doodle, Green Revolution,” was selected from thousands of entries received this year. Students at West Oak Middle School helped Marsha celebrate during a surprise school-wide
assembly.

The next step in the process involves voting and this is how Mundelein residents can assist Marsha in winning the overall National competition. Voting will be open from June 3-June 7 on this site:
http://www.google.com/doodle4google/vote.html. 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 whom 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 toward the establishment or improvement of a computer lab or technology program.
