After months of deliberation, Google has selected the winner of this year’s Doodle 4 Google contest.
The winning drawing was created by Sarah Harrison, a high school student from Connecticut. Here’s her design:

The annual event, which lets students in grades K-12 put their spin on the logo on Google’s homepage, launched in September. This year’s theme was “What I see for the future.”
“My future is a world where we can all learn to love each other despite our religion, gender, race, ethnicity, or sexuality,” Harrison told Google about her design. “I dream of a future where everyone is safe and accepted wherever they go, whoever they are.”
Harrison’s doodle is live on Google’s homepage on Friday. She’ll receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a Chromebook, an Android tablet, and she’ll visit Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, to meet with the Doodle team. Her high school will receive $50,000 from Google to spend on technology.
Google also named national finalists in each of the four other age groups (kindergarten through third grade, fourth and fifth grade, sixth and seventh grade, and eighth and ninth grade). Those finalists will receive a $5,000 college scholarship, a trip to Google headquarters, a Chromebook, and an Android tablet.
