Doodle for Google Contest Winner is 2nd Grader With A Big Dream

The contest encourages kindergarten through 12th-grade students in the United States to use their artistic creativity to design an interpretation of the Google logo, personalized further with this year's theme: "When I grow up ..." Sarah Gomez-Lane from Falls Church, was announced as the victor of the Doodle for Google competition for 2018.

Sarah Gomez-Lane, a second-grader from Falls Church, Virginia, submitted the winning design.

The victor was announced after Google invited the finalists for each grade level to its headquarters in California, where they interacted with Google's professional doodlers for the day, according to a behind-the-scenes video released by the company. It was there that Google revealed Gomez-Lane won the contest.

"When they called my name, I was surprised", Sarah said in the video.

This is first time a kid has had the opportunity to collaborate with the Doodle team in the competition's 10-year history.

Ms. Gomez reportedly received $30,000 toward a college scholarship, and her elementary school in Falls Church, VA will receive $50,000 to spend on IT equipment.

Google is sharing the work of the 2018 Doodle for Google victor on its U.S. homepage today.

Winners of every grade level were invited to Google's headquarters to interact with the company's professional doodlers.

Sarah, who says she wants to be a paleontologist when she grows up, delighted the Doodle staff with her illustration of dinosaurs.

Students can use any material they like - crayons, clay, or even food - but their Doodle has to incorporate the Google letters.

This year's entries will be judged by Jimmy Fallon, Kermit the Frog (or more likely Matt Vogel who voices Kermit), and 2018's National Teacher of the Year, Mandy Manning.
