Doodle 4 Google 2011 Winner 7 Year Old From San Francisco

Google on Thursday chose San Francisco, California second grader Matteo Lopez’s space-inspired doodle as the winner of Doodle 4 Google 2011, taking home a $15,000 college scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for his school, San Francisco’s Monte Verde Elementary.
Marissa Mayer, VP of Product Management, wrote in a blog post, “Matteo’s doodle of the Google logo artfully depicts a trip to space, walking on the moon, and even making friends with aliens. Matteo has already soared to great heights, rising to the top of the more than 107,000 submissions sent in from all over the country.” 

Google also picked out three finalists: fourth grader Joseph Eugene Miller from Wilmington, NC, who also selected a space theme; seventh grader Justas Varpucanskis from Mokena, IL, who depicted an underwater universe; and high school junior Hannah Newsom from Fayetteville, AR, who would like to be an illustrator.

The three finalists will be receiving a $5,000 scholarship grant each.

All 40 doodles that reached the finals will be on display at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York through June 16 and at SFMOMA in San Francisco from May 20 through July 19
