As many of you have probably heard, local high school artist Geordey Sherrick has been selected as one of 40 artists in the Google student art contest. He will be representing Western Region 10 in the contest.
To vote for Sherrick, go to www.google.com/doodle4google/vote.html from each computer you own. Tell your friends to do the same.
Google is flying Sherrick and his mother to New York City on May 20 for two days. Because of the distance and time involved, Sherrick's art teacher, Jan Neimeyer, would like to help them raise another $500 so they can spend two days visiting museums. She called the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council to see if we had any way to help, and I told her I would do what I can. Let us know if you too can help.
If selected, Sherrick stands to win a $15,000 scholarship and an additional $25,000 for the high school's technology lab. Sherrick also will receive a laptop computer and a T-shirt with his logo on it.
Please vote for Region 10 and spread the word.
