Coventry student finalist in Google doodle competition

Molly Brown's Doodle 4 Google submission shows a device to replicate world peace.

A Coventry student is one of 50 state finalists in the annual Doodle 4 Google competition.

Children from kindergarten through grade 12 were challenged to draw a Google doodle inspired by the theme "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place ..."

Molly Brown is in the eighth grade at Alan Shawn Feinstein Middle School.

Her doodle is called "Replicating World Peace."

"I would probably make a peace multiplier, creating unity and equality within the world. Peace could end wars, stop families from being torn, and create a place of sharing, adding quality to life," Brown said about her doodle.

Five national finalists will be determined by public vote, which is open through May 9.

The winner will be named May 21, and the winning doodle will be animated and displayed on the Google home page on June 9.

The winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and his or her school will get a $50,000 Google for Education grant to be used for computers or technology.
