GET voting for super doodler Chloe McAdam who
has scribbled her way to become Northern Ireland's regional
finalist in a national competition `Doodle for Google - My Britain'
The bubbly seven-year-old, a primary three
pupil at St Aloyius in Lisburn, is in with a chance of scooping
the top prize - a trip to Google HQ, the Googleplex, California
where she could help Dennis Hwamg, Google's Master Doodler and
top competition judge design a doodle for Google's Homepage.
The task at hand for the UK's 10 million
school children age 4-18 was to design a Google Doodle
explaining what it means to be British. The winning doodle will
be displayed on
www.google.co.uk for a day and will be seen by around 18
Chloe is now one of 30 finalists short-listed
by an expert panel of judges whose designs are already up for
the public vote.
Her teacher, Mrs Clare McAllister who entered
the "bubbly, larger than life" little girl, is urging local
people to get on line and register their support by logging on
Mrs McAllister said: "We have been doing all
we can at St Aloyius to back Chloe and have been writing out to
other schools and parents to get voting.
"Now we are asking everyone to support
Chloe's entry. She is a creative child, a lovely little
chatter-box who is not only a great artist but also a Champion
Irish Dancer. It is our greatest wish that Chloe, who has been
producing award-winning art since Primary One and who attends
the Artbreak after schools club, gets every chance she
Chloe's proud mum, Angela McAdam, dad, Neil
and her brother Jamie (17) will also be behind her all the way
when she travels to the next round of the competition at
London's Science Museum on November 6.
Angela said: "We are so proud of her having
come so far and we will be keeping our fingers crossed for her
as the competition progresses.
"She has great imagination and has always
taken great pride in her artwork. It's great for her to get this
opportunity and for Northern Ireland to be represented in such a
big high profile competition."
