GREENWOOD, SC - A talented student in Greenwood, SC will soon have his art on the Google homepage for hundreds of millions to see. Google is announcing the 53 state and territory winners in its eighth annual Doodle 4 Google competition, a contest open to K-12 students across the United States to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme “What makes”.

Khalil Lake, a 12th grader from Emerald High School in Greenwood, is one of the 53 winners with his doodle, “My Google View.”  “As a student with multiple disabilities, Google looks a little differently to me. But it allows me to see things I might otherwise be unable to,” Khalil said. Khalil’s doodle was selected from around 100,000 received this year. This was the first year that the use of non-traditional media was strongly encouraged, and about a quarter of submissions used materials like clay, paper mache, leaves and picnic tables!
