Vote for our local Google Doodler

North Charleston student John W's Google Doodle has been selected as a finalist from over 114,000 entries. From North Pole, Alaska to Miami, Florida to Cape Elizabeth, Maine, to Kapa'a, Hawai'i, the 50 finalists hail from literally every corner of the country.

John said, "My picture expresses the theme by depicting a scene of a 1970s jazz band. I chose this drawing because I enjoy the styles and sounds of this era. I would love to be able to travel in time to visit a city like New Orleans and watch a jazz band."

The winning Doodle will be displayed on Google's homepage.  In addition, the doodler will take home a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school.

The theme for this year’s contest was “If I could travel in time, I’d visit...”. That could mean visiting a past, present or future setting—whether it’s traveling back in time to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, to the future to witness everyday space travel, or to just a few moments ago to relive a poignant experience.

  1. This is surprisingly advanced work from such a young person. Even the written description suggests a much higher age level. Good luck!
