Greystone Elementary proudly announced today that fifth grader Reily Randolph has been chosen as Alabama’s fourth and fifth grade winner in Google’s fifth annual Doodle 4 Google contest.
The Google contest asked K – 12 students to “doodle” their artistic answer to the question, “If I could travel in time, I’d visit….”. Reily’s entry featured the Industrial Revolution.
U.S. Representative Spencer Bachus announced to the excited crowd that Reily’s state-level winning entry was one of over 114,000 entries into the contest. Google representatives made the trip to Hoover to present Reily with the surprise news.
Reily and her mother will go to New York on May 17 to find out if she’s selected as the national winner. Her design will be displayed at the New York Public Library. Once it is complete, the design will be displayed in the Birmingham Museum of Art.
Should Reily win the U.S. competition, she will receive a $30,000 college scholarship.
