Second grader Dylan Hoffman of Caledonia, Wisc. has been named this year’s U.S. Doodle 4 Google National Winner. His doodle “Pirate Times” was featured on the U.S. Google homepage Friday. (See photo for winning entry)
With his win, Dylan has come into some treasure of his own: a $30,000 college scholarship, a Chromebook computer and a $50,000 technology grant for his school. As an added bonus, Dylan’s doodle will grace the front of a special edition of the Crayola 64-crayon box, available this fall.
Coginchaug freshman Cory Hassman of Durham was one of 50 state finalists in the national contest and was honored during a ceremony earlier this month at the high school.
The 14-year-old talked about the inspiration for his doodle in an interview with Patch.
Despite not winning the top prize, Cory's doodle will be on exhib at the New York Public Library from May 18-July 19. Cory's artwork will go on display in Connecticut at a later date, check back with Patch for details.
