SALT LAKE CITY — The latest Google Doodle comes from a second-grader.
What happened: The new Google Doodle design includes a bunch of dinosaurs that shape into the Google logo. The design comes from the Doodle 4 Google contest, which calls for students to submit their individual doodle ideas.
- “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,” the company said in a blog post.
- Sarah Gomez-Lane, a second-grader from Falls Church, Virginia, submitted the winning design. She said the design is “what inspires me,” USA Today reports.
- Interestingly, her design marks the first time a designer has worked with Google to create an animation of the logo.
Reward: Gomez will receive $30,000 toward a college scholarship. Her school will have a chance to spend $50,000 on technology for all students.
Judges: Jimmy Fallon and Kermit the Frog were among this year’s contest judges. Mandy Manning, who won the 2018 National Teacher of the Year Award, also helped with the competition.
Recent: Fallon and Kermit appeared together on “The Tonight Show” not long ago. Watch that clip below.
