Young Harry Kane (6), a student from Bray, has shown his creativity after winning the big prize in this years 'Doodle 4 Google' competition.

His drawing of a colourful beach from a recent holiday in Portugal put him ahead of 74 other finalists and won him a €5,000 scholarship and a Chromebook.

"My perfect day is on my summer holidays. I love to swim in the sea, eat yummy ice cream, sail on a boat, fly my kite and build sandcastles." Harry said.

Harry's school, which is in Bray, County Wicklow, also won a €10,000 technology grant from Google.

Proud mother Paula said that she was "absolutely delighted" with her son's victory, saying she was "still in shock".

"He said that he loves holidays, playing in the beach and eating ice cream and that's how his drawing all came about", she said.

There were more than 5,000 entries in this years competition, which is now in its seventh year.

A record 140,000 votes were registered this year,
