VOTING to crown the winner of this year’s Doodle 4 Google competition is now open, with two children from Mayo in with a chance of being crowned champion.

The two students among 75 regional finalists are Pearse Maye, The Neale National School (Group 1), and Shane Mullaney, Midfield National School, Swinford (Group 1).

Members of the public can vote for their favourite Doodle on https://doodles.google.ie/d4g/. Voting will close at midnight on February 21.

The five most popular doodles, one from each age category, will go forward to the grand final on April 3 where the overall winner will be announced.

The two Mayo boys were selected from over 4,200 students from across the country who picked up their pens, pencils and crayons to enter this year’s competition, with 75 finalists shortlisted.

This year, students were asked to design a Doodle based on the theme of ‘If I could create anything it would be…’ with the winning Doodle appearing on the Google homepage in April.

 

Shane Mullaney: I press the propeller button on the steering wheel and my car flies up in the air. I fly over all the traffic waiting at traffic lights and I don't get stuck in the traffic jams. It's cool!
