SUWANEE — A Suwanee third-grader has won a statewide contest to design Google's ever-changing "doodle" design.
Google officials announced Wednesday that Misra Anounshka of Johns Creek's Shakerag Elementary will represent Georgia in the voting for the nationwide winner. The winning student will get artwork on the website for a day, a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for the child's school.
The 9-year-old Georgia student's design includes Vincent Van Gogh's face as the "G" and one of the artist's paintings for the first "O." The background includes blue and green swirls in the style of the post-Impressionist painter.
More than 114,000 designs were sent to Google for the contest. Voting runs from Wednesday through May 10.
