TAHS student selected as winner for SD in Doodle for Google Student Contest

A talented Tea Area High School student could soon have her art on the Google homepage for hundreds of millions to see. Google has announced the 54 State and Territory winners in its 15th annual Doodle for Google competition, a contest where K-12 students across the United States have the opportunity to create their own version of the Google logo inspired by the prompt “I am grateful for....”.

Aiden Pearson, a senior at Tea Area, is one of the 54 US State and Territory Winners with her Doodle, “Support System”. Aiden’s Doodle (pictured above) was selected from thousands of entries received this year. Students at Tea Area School District helped Aiden celebrate during a surprise assembly on Monday, May 15.

She will now move on to compete against winners from around the United States. To help their favorites succeed, everyone across the U,S. can vote for their favorite Doodle from the 54 State and Territory Winners.

Voting opened on May 18 and will remain open until May 25 on this site: The public vote will determine the Five National Finalists (one in each grade group). Google will announce the five National Finalists later this month, 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 their school will receive a $50,000 tech package towards the establishment or improvement of a computer lab or technology program.
