STONECREST, GA (AP) - A Georgia high school graduate has won a $30,000 college scholarship through the "Doodle for Google" competition.
Citing a Google statement, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Arantza Pena Popo's design was featured on the tech giant's homepage Tuesday. The nationwide contest asked grade-schoolers to redesign Google's logo based on what they hoped for the future.
Popo's doodle titled "Once you get it, give it back" shows a framed picture of Popo's mother carrying her as an infant sitting above an adult Popo caring for her aging mother.
The Colombia native graduated as a valedictorian from Arabia Mountain High School in Stonecrest. Google says the school will get $50,000 to establish a computer or technology lab.
Popo plans to study graphic design at the University of Southern California this fall.
