If Quinto wins, she also gets a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology award for her school. The contest theme was What Makes Me Strong. Quinto says what makes her strong is her family and their Filipino culture and identity.

Quinto first created the doodle as part of an extra credit assignment and said she was surprised that it would become the doodle contest winner for Hawaii.
