Google has declared second-grader Dylan Hoffman the national Doodle 4 Google contest champion.
Hoffman’s “Pirate Times” drawing (featured here) will be the logo on Google’s homepage for Friday May 18th.
In addition to a brand new Chromebook, the seven-year old student will receive a $30,000 college scholarship. And Google didn’t forget about his classmates either. The rest of the elementary school Hoffman attends will get a $50,000 technology grant.
Hoffman’s artwork along with the other top 50 entries will be on exhibit at The New York Library from May 18th – July 19th.
In a blog post, Marissa Mayer, Google’s vice president, product management, said Hoffman’s doodle “will also be featured on a special edition Crayola 64 Box, the first time ever that a child’s artwork has appeared on Crayola’s iconic box.”
Google reported that there were 114,000 entrants in 2012 for the yearly contest.
