7-Year-Old’s Doodle May be Worth $80,000
Google has chosen their finalists for their 5th annual “Doodle 4 Google” competition. One of the finalists is 7-year-old Dylan Hoffman from Wisconsin. (If you’re surprised by his age, note that last year’s winner was a 7-year-old too!) If Dylan wins first place this year, his doodle will be worth a whooping $80,000!
Dylan titled his artwork “Pirate Times,” with a description:
If I could travel in time, I’d visit Pirate Times. I would like to sail a pirate ship looking for treasure, have a colorful pet parrot and enjoy beautiful sunsets from deserted islands.
If he gets enough votes to win the contest, Dylan will receive a $30,000 scholarship, as well as $50,000 for his school. To top it off, his artwork will be displayed in the Milwaukee Art Museum, the New York Public Library, Google’s homepage, AND a Crayola box.
Good luck Dylan!
