Now Molly B. needs your help to advance to the next round
Bedford, NH | Molly Baker of Pelham, New Hampshire, and Girl Scout Daisy of Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains (GSGWM), has been selected as 1 of 53 finalists in the 2018 “Doodle 4 Google” contest. Baker and her family received a phone call from Google representatives letting her know that she is the state winner of the contest and that she will advance to compete as one of the 5 national finalists in the country.
Baker, a first grader at Pelham Elementary School, was motivated by her love of outer space when she created her drawing to answer this year’s contest theme What Inspires Me.
“Outer Space inspires me because of all the cool things about outer space. From a constellation, to a shooting star, an astronaut, a space shuttle, and the planets in outer space,” said Baker. “I hope that someday I become an astronaut and explore space!”
Girl Scouts across the council share Baker’s love of space and look forward to earning their Space Science badges in the coming year through Reaching for the Stars: NASA Science for Girl Scouts. Funded by NASA’s Science Mission Directorate and led by the SETI Institute, this latest program in Girl Scouting offers opportunities for girls to participate in activities using STEM from creating telescopes out of household objects and identifying constellations, to night sky scavenger hunts and exploring and creating planets and solar systems, and more.
Molly Baker now needs help to advance to the next round. Her drawing will be featured in an online gallery, under the K-3 category and labeled as “New Hampshire.” Starting Monday, May 7 votes can be cast here: https://doodles.google.com/d4g/. The public can vote for their favorite doodle, once a day through May 18. Winners will be chosen to advance to the next contest round for a chance to be featured on Google.com, along with other prize incentives.
