Alyssa Anderson, a 7th grade student at Wright Middle School, is one of the 53 state winners of the 'Doodle 4 Google' Competition!

The theme for this year's competition was "What I see for the future,..." and Alyssa's doodle “New Life for the Extinct” depicts the return of extinct animals. She spent about 30 hours creating her doodle, which was selected from thousands of entries received this year. Students and staff at Wright helped Alyssa celebrate during a surprise assembly on February 23.

To help their favorites succeed, everyone across the USA can vote for their favorite doodle from the 53 state winners. Voting opened on February 23 and ends on March 6. The public vote will determine the five national finalists (one in each grade group). Just click on the button below, select 'Grades 6-7' and Alyssa's doodle is located on the very bottom right of the list.

Google will announce these five national finalists and one of them as the national winner on March 31 — and the winner’s doodle will go live on that day.

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