FARGO — A Fargo high school student's drawing has a chance to be featured on Google's homepage.

Denise Jiang's illustration, entitled "Slurp," won the Doodle for Google Student Contest for North Dakota. She's a sophomore at South High.

In the contest, K-12 students from across the country entered drawings, and Google allowed voting on the drawings on their website.

The winner will be picked from the top five drawings by a panel of celebrity judges.

The winning piece will then be featured on Google's homepage for a full day in June, and the student will get a $30,000 college scholarship. The school will also receive a $50,000 tech package toward improving a computer lab or technology program.

Jiang says this victory was good reassurance for her.

"I have entered other art competitions and I haven't won those, so it always makes me feel like, 'Oh, is my art not good enough,' and stuff like that, but it's moments like these that I know that it will come," Jiang said.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
