Along with Theodore Geisel, Jackson Pollack and Diego Rivera, add second grader Dylan Hoffman to the artists who have inspired the ever-changing sketches of the Google home-page logo. Hoffman, who lives in Caledonia, Wisc. Came in first among 114,000 School kids who submitted drawings to the annual Doodle 4 Google contest.
His drawing, “Pirate Times,” was his answer to the question, “If I could travel in time I’d visit...” It will serve as the Google Logo all day Friday, May 18.
In addition to the home page honors, Hoffman wins $30,000 college scholarship, a Google Chromebook computer. Meanwhile, his school gets a $50,000 technology grant.
Last year’s winner was another second-grader, seven-year-old Matteo Lopez, from Monte Verde Elementary School in South San Francisco, California, for his sketch “Space Life.”
