Freshman Em Mejias could win a $30,000 scholarship and a tech package for the school.
LA GRANGE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A lot is on the line for one North Oldham High School student, after her doodle was chosen to advance in a contest by Google.
Freshman Em Mejias is a finalist in the Google Doodle contest for the state of Kentucky. Her doodle is now entered in the National Google Doodle contest with the chance to win a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 tech package for her school.
If Em wins, she also gets to go behind-the-scenes at Google to watch the Doodle team transform her artwork into an interactive experience.
Votes on the Google website will choose five nationwide finalists.
The theme for this year's contest was "what inspires me." Winners for each state were chosen based on artistic merit, creativity and how well they communicated the theme.
Em's entry in the 8th and 9th grade group says her inspiration is nature.
Mother Nature: The True First Artist
"I believe that anybody can be inspired by nature, nature is the first true example of creation and beauty. From the ocean, the sky, wherever - life itself is a miracle that can inspire others to do anything, since it was the first thing that anyone was able to see. "
Kentucky, 8-9 Grade Group
