Walnut student’s doodle could win $30,000 from Google


Students usually get in trouble for doodling
during class. Unless they’re part of the art club at Suzanne Middle
School in Walnut.

Then it can become very profitable, especially if it’s for the Doodle 4 Google competition.

Just ask 12-year-old Herman Wang, who’s headed to New York City as
the California finalist in the nationwide contest. The sixth-grader
could win a $30,000 scholarship as well as a $50,000 technology grant
for the school.

“There were more than 114,000 submissions this year,” explained
Google’s Chris Wilcox. “Herman’s was chosen from all the entries we got
in California.”
