Congratulations go out to grade 9 student at Brewer High School

9th grader Morgan Forrest learned at a school assembly that she is one of 40 finalists for the Doodle 4 Google contest. More than 107,000 art students from all over the US submitted designs. You can vote for Morgan’s design by clicking here

The theme for Morgan’s design was “What I’d like to do someday”. Her untitled work represents “my thoughts of living in a world with peace.”

Congratulations go out to Morgan’s art teacher Lori Spruce who said the entire school department is proud of Morgan’s accomplishments. “She has done an amazing design,” Principal Becky Bubar said. “The message behind it is: It’s all faiths and beliefs. This is one world; we should be able to figure out a way to all live together.”

The national winner will receive a $15,000 college scholarship and his or her high school school will be awarded a $25,000 grant.

The Maine art students who ranked in the top 400 for the Doodle 4 Google contest this year are: Mckenna Picard and Victoria Curro, St. James School in Biddeford (K-3); Emily Jones, Shapleigh Middle School in Kittery and Rose Warren, Hall Dale Middle School in Farmingdale (grades 4-6); Samantha Nadeau, Orono High School, and Forrest, Brewer High (grades 7-9); and Jessica Richards, Orono High School, and Courtney Pratt, Sanford Regional Technical Center.
