    Google Doodle Contest (VOTE!!)

    Stumbled on this link on the Google homepage for a national drawing contest of the Google logo and noticed that one of the better drawings in the K-3 division was by a kid who happens to be from Ames (St. Cecelia Elementary). There's a nice mini story about why he drew what he did too along with the drawing, which is pretty darn good for a 7 year old! Not sure if anyone here knows him or their family, but let's try to vote and help him win the K-3 division!

    Those were some pretty good pieces of artwork, and to think that I had low expectations for them.

    I don't know any 8 year old that can use the word irrespective or understand racism..I think it's obvious there was more than a little help from parents on a few of them

    I'm artistically inclined, but even I couldn't draw like that when I was 7.

    This is off topic, but on the back of my senior yearbook there was a close up picture of a closed eye. This eye had a bunch of pink eye makeup on it. So you can all imagine what it looked like to a bunch of high school boys.

    I know the young man who made this. What makes his drawing unique is not only did he make the drawing, he is also acting on his idea. He has raised over $3,000 dollars on his own to donate to clean water for Africa. He is an amazing young boy and it would be great if anyone out there would be willing to vote for his drawing to become the winning one. If so, just go to Doodle 4 Google and vote for Nathan in Region 6. Thanks!

    Golly, I cannot believe you entered your own drawing under the 7 year old division.
