If you google the name, Eva Lindberg, you'll find a doodler with a dream. She is a Bellevue third grader who is now a finalist in the Doodle-4-Google contest.

The challenge: Doodle your best day ever.

Lindberg's winning entry beat out 130,000 others in Washington.

I was actually quite stunned because usually I never actually win these things, said Lindberg.

Her colorful illustration draws inspiration from her stuffy friends.

My parrot, my monkey, the monkey's name is Puddle. And the turtle, that one's name is Wiggle.

Puddle and Wiggle-- going gaga for Google.

They're basically my best friends because all my friends keep moving away so I decided to just incorporate them, said Lindberg.

Her dad first told her about the contest, knowing how much his daughter loves to draw, or in this case, doodle.

So she noodled her doodle then sent it to Google.

It's about me going to an island with all my stuffed animals and just partying during the day, Lindberg said.

Now Eva and company could party all the way to the bank. This month she heads to New York to compete in the finals.

The final five will go on to compete for the grand prize, a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for Medina Elementary.

You can vote for Eva Lindberg's doodle from the 50 state winners online through May 10:
