Joe White Horse, an Indian student from Farmington High School in New Mexico, is a regional finalist in the Doodle 4 Google contest. White Horse, an 18-year-old senior, lost his grandmother to breast cancer in 2006. His doodle for the competition represents his desire to find a cure for the disease. "I look at cancer as an unstoppable black mass," White Horse told The Farmington Daily Times. "When cancer takes over, it takes the hearts of everyone around that person. If I could do anything, I would cure cancer." White Horse is one of 40 regional finalists for the competition. If he wins, he will receive a $15,000 scholarship, computer equipment and a $25,000 grant for his school. Voting takes place online and the four top winners will be announced next Wednesday in New York City. White Horse, a finalist in the Grade 10-12 category, will be there for the ceremony.
