Who knew little Dylan Hoffman's Google doodle would garner so much support, and quite a bit of attention.
But he earned it, according to a story in the Journal Times.
The seven-year-old Caledonia boy took out his markers and drew a pirate-themed Google logo that has earned him a spot among 50 finalists in their Doodle 4 Google competition.
So what did Dylan and his mom, Katherin
“I fainted,” Dylan said. His mom, Katharina Hoffman, quickly clarified — he didn’t faint, but he was almost falling down from excitement.
“He was kind of shocked a little bit, it’s just quite a bit for a little boy,” said Katherina Hoffman, 37, a project manager.
His drawing is titled "Pirate Times," and his description said:
If I could travel in time, I'd visit Pirate Times. I would like to sail a pirate ship looking for treasure, have a colorful pet parrot and enjoy beautiful sunsets from deserted islands.
And he won.
Now Dylan will receive $30,000 for college and $50,000 for his school. He'll also have the drawing displayed in the Milwaukee Art Museum and the New York Public Library; his drawing will be on the Google homepage on May 18 and be posted on a special edition of Crayola's 64-box.
