Over the last decade, we’ve been privileged to receive hundreds of thousands of submissions for our annual Doodle for Google contest—submissions that reflect the dreams, hopes, and talents of students across the country. For our 10th year, we asked students to respond to the theme “What inspires me…” and received Doodles depicting everything from a love of family and food to a passion for intergalactic roller coasters!
Today, we’re thrilled to share the work of our 2018 Doodle for Google winner on the US Google homepage: 2nd grader Sarah Gomez-Lane, who drew delightful dinosaurs to highlight her dream of becoming a paleontologist! We fell in love with Sarah’s rendering of her dinos, and were blown away by her big (you might even say “dino-sized”!) ambitions for her future, especially at her young age.
For the first time in Doodle for Google’s 10-year history, Sarah got to collaborate with the Doodle team to transform her artwork into an animated, interactive experience. She also received $30,000 toward a college scholarship, and her elementary school in Falls Church, VA will receive $50,000 to spend on technology to help students like Sarah continue to pursue what inspires them.
