During the special assembly that the school and Google have put together, we've learned things about Google and how Doodle4Google have started. The Google representatives have prepared a presentation for the students.
When we think about the word Google, the first thing that come to mind is the word "search" right? The QUEST of finding an answer to something that we are looking for online. Well, they said that Google does so much things aside from search and stuff.
They asked the student to make a guess which of the four below is the very first Google Doodle that they came up with. The answer is the first one.
Then they started a contest called Doodle4Google which gives k-12 student from 50 states a chance to win a scholarship. Every year, there is a specific theme.
My daughter is the state of West Virginia's winner this year. Her entry was about creating a cure for cancer as we lost love ones from this dreaded and killer C. Below is her essay.
The world would be a much better place if we could stop cancer from taking so many lives each year. Technology has made it easier to detect and treat but we still have a long way to go. One life lost is one too many.
Her entry was inspired of the fact that my husband's family have lost lives of love ones from cancer-related diseases. She's sad that she did not get to meet her grandmother (my husband's Mom) and she also witnessed how hard it was for her Uncle Dave to go through the cancer treatment which eventually led to his demise.
