Six-year-old Irish girl named Google’s top doodler

A six-year-old student from Dublin has been named Ireland’s top doodler.

Layla Karpuz was selected as the overall winner by Mike Dutton, web designer and senior doodler with Google.

The junior infants student won the top prize with her entry “Love Google”. Her doodle will now appear on Google’s homepage on Wednesday. Layla's school will receive a €10,000 technology grant, while her and her teacher will be rewarded with a personal laptop each.

Talking about her design Layla said: “My picture is about the things that make me feel happy. In my picture you can see love hearts, curls, shamrocks, people with fancy hats, people going on a bear hunt, grass men (men disguised as grass), plants, shamrock plants for Ireland, Grannies and a caterpillar because I like searching for caterpillars. I used different colors in my picture because it looks nice. I like my picture!”
