STONECREST, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia high school graduate has won a $30,000 college scholarship through the "Doodle for Google" competition.

Citing a Google statement, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Arantza Pena Popo's design was featured on the tech giant's homepage Tuesday. The nationwide contest asked grade schoolers to redesign Google's logo based on what they hoped for the future.

Popo's doodle titled "Once you get it, give it back" shows a framed picture of Popo's mother carrying her as an infant sitting above an adult Popo caring for her aging mother.

The Colombia native graduated as a valedictorian from Arabia Mountain High School in Stonecrest. Google says the school will get $50,000 to establish a computer or technology lab.

Popo plans to study graphic design at the University of Southern California this fall.
