Christin Engelberth: Doodle 4 Google Winner
Christin Engelberth’s drawing is entitled “A New Beginning.” She says it’s meant to “express her wish that ‘out of the current crisis, discoveries will be found to help the Earth prosper once more.’”
Here’s one wish come true: For her winning entry, Engelberth will receive a $15,000 college scholarship and a laptop, in addition to having her work on display for the whole world to see. Her school will also get a $25,000 technology grant.
Christin Engelberth is joined by three Doodle 4 Google national finalists who will each receive a new laptop: Miriam Elizabeth Lowery from Covington, Tenn., Blakely Linz from Cincinnati, and Emerald Lu, from Covington, Ky.
The top Doodle 4 Google entries will all be displayed at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum from now until July 5.
