A drawing from a western Wisconsin teenager is featured today as the banner on Google’s home page. Sparta High School senior Sabrina Brady won the web companies “Doodle-for-Google” contest out of more than 130,000 entries.
The theme for this year’s contest was “My Best Day Ever,” and Brady’s entry was called “Coming Home.” The teen drew herself running toward her father, after he got home from an 18-month deployment in Iraq. The image portrays a young girl in black and white while running toward her father, then changes to full color when they hug.
An online vote helped determine the winner.
Brady is an art student and plans to attend the Minneapolis College of Art and Design this fall. She won a $30,000 college scholarship in the contest, a Chrome-book computer, and a $50,000 technology grant for her school.
