Samuel beats 26,000, impresses Google with clever logo
THEY say that you have to be in it to win it.
Clearly that is what St Joseph's Primary School student Samuel Nelson thought when he decided to enter a competition that attracted 26,000 other entries - Doodle for Google.
Samuel now finds himself as one of the top 32 chosen to be in the running for a personal prize and the final winner's prize for their school.
Regardless of the outcome, I think being a finalist is an achievement in itself and Samuel should be congratulated.
And I think everyone would agree, his amazing logo was very deserving of being chosen.
But now Samuel needs the help of his community.
The next round of the competition will see the finalists narrowed down to four, with winning entries appearing on the Google homepage for a day.
Those four will be chosen by popular choice, so Samuel needs the support of Bundaberg and everyone else far and wide to get voting for him.
Voting is now open and closes on Friday, October 2.
To vote head to http://www.google.com.au/doodle4google/ and follow the tab to the Year 4-6 category.
