Help! Nikki Strong wants her DMV Student to win this Scholarship!

Some of you may know that in addition to doing WHUR and media related work, I also teach. I work with 2yr olds all the way to 18 yr olds and occasionally adults, primarily teaching dance.  Well, one of my students, a fifth grader, is a finalist in the doodle4google contest.  Shashi Arnold is her name. She was featured in an article in the Washington Post for her work! Check it out here.

I learned a while ago never underestimate the dimensions of talent in your child or your student. Even though she was in my dance class, I knew she liked drawing when she gave me this for the holidays:

Shashi's Holiday Card 2


How precious is that? I know you gotta love it!Go Shashi!

Anyway, young artists coast to coast doodled their inventions to make the world a better place. Doodle 4 Google guest judges have chosen the 50 state winners. Now I want Shashi to win for the U.S.! The one with the most votes wins, so please vote for #ShashiArnold of Silver Spring, MD. Hers is called Imagination Transportation — in which kids soar through the skies in cardboard boxes.

The winner’s doodle will appear on the homepage and he or she will receive a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school.  Public voting ends May 9th.

Could you click the link and cast your vote and tell your friends to do the same?  If you follow me on twitter @iamnikkistrong, you already know I have been putting this on blast.  #Shashi #google4doodle

I thank you in advance!

Go team #shashi!!!
