Nine year old Makenzie Melton, a third-grade student from El Dorado Springs, Missouri, has been selected winner at the fourth annual ‘Doodle 4 Google’ competition. The competition invites schoolchildren from across the United States to create an imaginative doodle worthy of gracing the site’s main page. This time around Makenzie’s Rainforest Habitat (pictured) has been picked as the best doodle at the event.
Makenzie created the doodle as she found that the rainforest is in danger and it was not fair to the plants and animals. “I love everything except spiders and snakes, but I would still save them,” she has been quoted as saying. The winning entry was picked from more than 33,000 submissions and granted global exposure on May 27. Makenzie will now be presented with a $15,000 USD scholarship, a Netbook computer, and a $25,000 USD tech grant for a new computer lab at her school.
