SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) -- A Rollings Middle School student was chosen as one of 50 state finalists in the national contest and now your vote could help him become the grand prize winner.

John Christopher Wright, a 7th grader from Rollings Middle School of the Arts, created a drawing that was selected from over 100,000 entries nationwide.

Google announced the 50 Doodle 4 Google finalists on Tuesday. The contest was open to K-12 students across the U.S. to redesign the Google logo inspired by the theme “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place...”

Wright's doodle, “The J Nation Recycling Machine,” depicts an invention that recycles and turns trash into flowers. His artwork now joins 49 others in an online contest to pick five finalists, one in each grade group.

All 50 finalists will head to Google HQ in California where the final five will be announced May 21.

The winning student will have their drawing animated and will be on the Google homepage June 9. The winner will also get a $30,000 scholarship and his or her school will receive a $50,000 Google for Education grant.

To help take Wright to the final round, you can vote for his drawing by clicking here. Voting ends on May 9.
