Doodle 4 Google
Congratulations to Findley Elementary 4th grader, Elise Then, who is a state finalist in the annual Doodle 4 Google contest. Elise describes her doodle Nature’s Strong-Fold in this way: “In this doodle, I chose to represent strength found in nature using origami. For example, hummingbirds, the smallest bird in the world, can beat their wings 40 times in the blink of an eye! Nature is a gift where I derive my strength. I must appreciate and care for it.”
Google invited the public to vote for their favorite Doodle from the 54 state and territory winners to determine which students will go on to become one of the five national finalists. The national winner’s Doodle will be featured on the Google homepage for a day.
