A 16-year-old girl from Liberty, Missouri, is a regional finalist in the Doodle 4 Google contest, and the prize for the winner will receive a college scholarship, according to the Kansas City Star.

Sophomore Alexis Zaborac, who is interested in graphic design, will be one of 40 students that will display their design. If she wins, she will receive a $15,000 scholarship and $25,000 will go to her school.

"We feel it is a great way to connect and share our love of technology and spread it to local schools," Travis Morrison, the account manager for Google, told the news source. "The doodle is so popular, we decided to give children the chance to do their own."

According to the Liberty Tribune, the 40 finalists will travel to New York City and showcase their doodles at the Whitney Museum of American Art of New York and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

The top four will be chosen by a popularity vote from viewers, then the winner will be determined by Google executives on May 19. The following day the winning doodle will appear on the website.
