Sausage dog snags prize for Billy

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A DRAW­ING in­spired by play­ing with his late grand­fa­ther and sausage dog Snag­gers in Yallingup has made Billy Ma­haffy (8) the only Doo­dle 4 Google com­pe­ti­tion fi­nal­ist from WA.

On Thurs­day, the Cottes­loe res­i­dent will travel to the Na­tional Gallery in Syd­ney to find out if his unique Google logo de­sign will win his school, Scotch Col­lege, $10,000 worth of tech­nol­ogy equip­ment.

As well as hop­ing to climb the Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge with his dad An­drew, Billy said he was most look­ing for­ward to stay­ing at a lux­ury ho­tel.

Vis­ual arts teacher Karen Sabitay said Billy’s en­try was posted on the sec­ond an­niver­sary of his grand­fa­ther’s death.

“Billy’s de­sign is very, very clever for a Year 3 stu­dent,” Ms Sabitay said.

“One of the prizes is that his logo de­sign would be on the Google home­page for 24 hours, which doesn't sound like much, but then you think of how many peo­ple would see that logo over one day around the world. It is quite re­mark­able.”
