    Morrah’s artwork, titled “Love Made Visible” was chosen by a public vote and announced this morning.  She will receive a $5,000 scholarship, Google hardware and Googly swag.
     
    She is now eligible to compete for the top prize of a $30,000 scholarship and $50,000 technology package for her school. In addition, the National Winner’s artwork will be displayed on Google.com for one day.  A panel of Google executives will choose one of the five National Finalists and announce the National Winner in June.
     

    Doodle for Google is an annual contest open to students in grades K-12. Students are invited to create their own Google Doodle for the chance to have it featured on Google.com, as well as win some great scholarships and tech packages for their schools.
