Cerdon College student Doodle4Google finalist
|Christina Nguyen's Doodle4Google entry.|
Cerdon College Merrylands Year 10 student Christina Nguyen has been named the national age group winner for the Doodle4Google ‘My Future Australia’ competition.
The competition was open to all school students in Australia from Years 1 to 10 in varying age categories. In choosing the theme, ‘My Future Australia’, Google asked young people across Australia to design a doodle depicting what they think the future of Australia will look like.
Christina’s artwork was published online along with eight other submissions.
The general public were asked to vote on their favourite drawings and, after thousands of online votes, Christina was awarded the national winner of the Years 9 to 10 age group category.
Window to the Australia’s future
Christina is now one of four finalists heading to Canberra in contention for the title of national winner, and the chance to have her design published on the Google Australia homepage for a day.
Christina said her entry was a window into the future showing Australia weathering the impact of environmental issues.
"I often think about the environment because there is so much in the media about it," Christina said."I feel very honoured to be chosen as the national winner for the Years 9 to 10 category and very proud to represent Cerdon at the finals ceremony."
