Lusher Student One of 5 National Finalists in Doodle for Google Contest

Date: August 31st, 2020

Lusher Charter School Senior Morrah Burton-Edwards is a finalist in the 2020 Doodle for Google competition.  She was the Louisiana state winner for Grades 10-12 and is one of only 5 artists from across the country who were chosen for their artwork in the national contest.

Morrah’s artwork, titled “Love Made Visible” was chosen by a public vote and announced this morning.  She will receive a $5,000 scholarship, Google hardware and Googly swag.

She is now eligible to compete for the top prize of a $30,000 scholarship and $50,000 technology package for her school. In addition, the National Winner’s artwork will be displayed on for one day.  A panel of Google executives will choose one of the five National Finalists and announce the National Winner in the next few weeks.
“I’m honored to be a national finalist. I didn’t think I would make it this far,” said Morrah.  “Thank you to everyone who voted and shared my drawing!”
Doodle for Google is an annual contest open to students in grades K-12. Students are invited to create their own Google Doodle for the chance to have it featured on, as well as win some great scholarships and tech packages for their schools.
Morrah was also the winner of the 2020 Muses Mardi Gras design cup contest.  She is a CAVA (Certificate of Artistry in Visual Arts) student at Lusher and also works with local artist BMike at his studio.
