I thought the same thing.

I actually voted for her! There were about 12 entries in each age group category. I think she might have even been the only one from Texas. There were some great designs so this win was very competitive! Major Kudos of Christin! What a huge honor for a middle school student. The Smithsonian will display the winners.....wow...can't get bigger than that!

I thought so too. I have one starting college in the fall, $15K only covers one semester . With Googles money they could have footed the whole bill.

Congrats to Christin, great job!!

Does anyone know which elementary school she attended? This is really cool. It is amazing that in this culture of standardized tests, a Texas public school student is able to develop her art talent!

When my daughter started kindergarten in 1999, her school (Longs Creek, which feeds into Harris Middle School) had a teacher who taught only Art. The Art teacher soon disappeared and Reading and Math specialists were hired. My daughter was in the first group of 3rd graders who had to pass the test to be promoted to 4th grade.

If you click on her artwork on the Google main page, it takes you to the different artwork submitted by students across the US. I spent quite a bit of time browsing through the artwork and I was impressed by their creativity.

Yes....and when you look at some of the other entries (especially younger ages) it's obvious that some had a bit of parental help! Cristin's is very age appropriate and authentic.

Just another note to how BIG this is. She did not just win for her age group....she won over all the age groups K-12 across the NATION!!!
That is HUGE. Go check out some of the high school entries. There is some sophisticated artwork in there.

I am curious to know which elementary school she attended before going to Harris.
