The News.com article, Schoolgirl wins Doodle 4 Google competition, reports the story of the just completed Doodle 4 Google "doodling" or drawing contest (you know, Google's famous "special logos" or "dooodles" usually drawn by Googler Dennis Hwang) that just ended.
The contest was open to students from London,UK area schools. The winner, Lisa Wainaina, aged 11, won a upper case "G" of frosted glass, and an interactive whiteboard for her school. You can see her winning doodle as well as other doodles of note on this page.
Hwang, who judged the entries, said:
"I thought I had a pretty secure job, but these kids are competition I wasn't aware of," Hwang joked. "My job security just went out the window."
