Google.ca handed its brand identity over to a 17-year old Wednesday, giving the Toronto high school student’s Google Doodle design first place in a national competition.

Cindy Tang was selected after nearly 200,000 Canadians voted on Doodles (artistic and themed renderings of Google’s logo) by students from across the country. Tang was one of four finalists and was ultimately crowned the winner by Google Canada’s judging panel.

The theme of this year’s contest was invention, and in her submission, Tang wrote, “I would invent a telescope that would show us the depth of the sea (all of it). I’ve heard we’ve discovered less than 5% of the ocean – 95% still left unseen by human eyes.”

As part of the prize, Tang received a $10,000 scholarship and an HP Chromebook computer. Google Canada also donated $10,000 to her school, Dr. Norman Bethune C.I.

All 25 contest finalists were flown to Toronto for an event at the Royal Ontario Museum Tuesday, where 72 submissions were on display.
