Doodles are the spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo in celebration of holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous artists, pioneers and scientists who have helped shape history. Doodle 4 Google is a competition open to all students attending primary or secondary schools in the Republic of Ireland to create their own Google doodle. The theme changes every year.
Chloe O’Dwyer, a John the Baptist student, qualified as one of 74 entries out of 5,085 participants in the 2015 Doodle for Google competition. She was declared the winner in her age group after receiving the most public votes. The theme of the competition was “My Perfect Day” and Chloe’s winning doodle entitled ‘Fairytale Fantasy’ was inspired by her love of reading fairytale books when she was younger. After attending the awards ceremony in Google offices Dublin and winning her category, Chloe took home a HP Chromebook for both herself and her teacher. In total there were 140,000 votes cast so Chloe must have received thousands!
