Logan Elementary student, Hannah Hu, had quite a surprise earlier this week when Google announced she is the Michigan winner in a nationwide contest for K-12th grade students to design a “Doodle4Google” using the theme “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place…”
Hannah is a 5th grader at Logan. Her “Google Doodle” is of an “Ocean Cleaner”. Using color pencils Hannah designed a cleaner that could clean up the world’s oceans from pollution. “I thought maybe I could invent something to clean the oceans,” said Hannah, and let the sea animals live happily in the water.”
Hannah’s design was one of 50 across the nation that will compete to appear as an animate doodle on Google’s home page in June. The winner will be announced on May 21st.

“I am really excited about this opportunity to represent the state of Michigan as one of the 50 state winners in the Doodle 4 Google contest. I would really appreciate your votes and I’d be honored if you voted for my doodle. There are lots of great Doodles out there so thank you all for voting for mine.”
The Logan school community welcomed Google staff members to a celebration of Hannah’s state winning design. T-shirts were distributed to students with a design of Hannah’s Google Doodle. A large poster was displayed of her design as her fellow students clapped and screamed in delight at this honor!
If Hannah’s Doodle wins, she will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and Logan would be awarded a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant!
