A CREATIVE Ipswich teenager is celebrating today after being named the winner of a national design competition.

Northgate High School pupil William Black, 15, became one of the top four doodlers out of 68,000 schoolchildren who designed entries for the Doodle 4 Google: My future competition run by internet company Google.

William was crowned the winner of the 15-16 age group via a public vote, where 210,000 votes were cast to select the top entries of each age category.

His entry on the theme of global warming, which depicted a melting Google logo, attracted the most votes in his age category.

William was invited along with the other 48 regional winners to attend an exclusive event in London where he was announced the winner.

In the morning William visited the London's Tate Modern before heading off to Google's UK head office.

There, William had the chance to meet Google's Master Doodler Dennis Hwang, where he learned some doodling tips before he attended the prize giving event.

The talented teen won a laptop for himself and a state of the art interactive white board for his school.

He said: “I have really enjoyed taking part in this year's competition and I am so excited I won my age category.”

The overall competition winner was 14-year old Claire Rammelkamp from Bristol, where her winning doodle will appear on Google UK's homepage for a day.
