Third-grader wins Google doodle contest

Posted: 04:44 PM ET

Thanks to a box of colored pencils and a whole lot of creativity, Makenzie Melton now has a $15,000 college scholarship, a netbook computer and a $25,000 technology grant for a new computer lab at her school.

How did a third-grader from El Dorado Springs, Missouri, score the prizes? By winning Google’s 2010 Doodle 4 Google contest.

Melton’s doodle, titled “Rainforest Habitat," will appear on the Google homepage Thursday.

The doodle, which expresses Melton’s “concern that the rainforest is in danger,” was chosen over more than 33,000 submissions by students - ranging from kindergarten to twelfth grade, according to a post on the Official Google Blog.

Melton and the rest of the applicants were asked to develop a doodle for the site’s home page based on the theme, “If I could do anything, I would…” A panel of “well-known illustrators, cartoonists and animators” helped choose the winning doodle, according to the blog.

The regional and state finalists’ doodles can be found on the official Google Blog.

Hello. I have not been there since summer. It was due to the fact I was on the way to Mexico because of my project at GMAC. It takes a whole lot of time from me, but I still think about your blog. I remember our days at College for Financial Planning (CO) in Florida. So delighted that we had a opportunity to compete around the pool. If you please forward my compliments to Mary as well as trent. L8rs

I will go on to come and take a look at your site to better to learn where to go when we get to Atlanta. Remember to keep blogging and offer us your feelings on Valencia College (FL). Plan to see you soon enough at the upcoming job fair at DuPont. Bye-bye.

I believe what you posted made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? what if you composed a catchier title? I am not saying your content isn't solid., however suppose you added something to maybe grab a person's attention? I mean is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they write post titles to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
