Carthage student's drawing a state finalist for Doodle 4 Google contest

Updated:

A drawing by an 11 year old Carthage girl has been chosen as a state finalist for the annual Doodle 4 Google contest.

Every once in a while, art drawings with the words "Google" incorporated in them are featured on Google's homepage.

Saige Haddock is a fifth grade student at Carthage Middle School and her entry featured dinosaurs because she wants to be a paleontologist when she grows up.

Saige explains how she found out from her mom she was a finalist for the Doodle 4 Google contest.

"She was picking me up from the bus and she was like, 'how was your day?'  And I was like 'just an ordinary day' and then she was like, 'once we get into the car you need to read this e-mail,'" says Saige.  "So I read it and it said that I would get a certificate and a t-shirt and all this stuff, and I was so happy."

While Saige's doodle wasn't chosen to advance in the Doodle 4 Google contest she still has much to be proud of.
