An eighth-grade student at Urbandale Middle School is one step closer to having her artwork featured on the Google homepage. Marissa Frost is one of the 50 state winners in Google Inc.'s sixth annual Doodle 4 Google competition, which lets student redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme "My Best Day Ever..."
"My drawing shows my best day ever because my best day will be when I have my Ph.D. as a medical scientist and work for finding cures to diseases. Helping to make others healthier would make my day the best ever," she said of her submission, shown above.
