JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Meridian elementary school student is one step closer to having her art on the Google homepage for hundreds of millions to see.

Allison Stewart, a third grader at The Lamar School, is the state winner for Mississippi. Her doodle, titled "Dino Days," was inspired by a trip she took to Dinosaur Land in Florida, according to a press release from Google Press.

Allison was one of 130,000 students from across the country who submitted entries in the sixth annual Doodle 4 Google competition. The contest is open K-12 students to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme "My Best Day Ever."

The 50 state winners will have their doodle displayed in a special exhibit at the American Museum of National History in New York May 22 through July 14.

The public can now vote for their favorite doodle from the 50 state winners and help select five national finalists. Voting will be open from May 1 to May 10 at the Doodle for Google website.

Google will then announce the five finalists and one of them as a national winner on May 22. The winning student's doodle will be featured on the Google homepage May 23, and he or she will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and $50,000 technology grant for his or her school.
