Young artist honored

The winning Alaska doodle by sixth grader Alys Korosei of Bowman Elementary School depicts a machine that turns garbage into fuel, based on the theme "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place...." Korosei received a large copy of her artwork, and classmates were presented T-shirts adorned with her design.

Sixth grader Alys Korosei shyly gets to her feet as she is announced as the Alaska winner of the Google 4 Doodle art contest on Tuesday morning, April 29, 2014, at Bowman Elementary School. Fifty state winners were honored Tuesday for their artworks based on the theme "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place...." Korosei drew a machine that turns garbage into fuel. "That would make the world a better place!," she asserted. The doodle is an artistic alteration to the Google company logo that appears on the homepage. Over 100,000 designs were submitted nationally. Sam Nana-Sinkam and Louis Amira of Google New York were present to make the Alaska announcement. Online voting through May 9 will determine national finalists, and the state winners will travel to California to find out which design is selected to appear on the Google.com homepage. "I am really excited to get to go to California," Korosei said. Incidentally, sister Emma Korosei won the state competition last year as an eighth grader at Goldenview Middle School.
