55 Doodle for Google winners share what they’re grateful for

In January, we kicked off the 15th annual Doodle for Google contest with a new theme for K-12 students across the U.S. This year, we asked students to use their artistic talents to respond to the prompt “I am grateful for…”.

Tens of thousands of submissions poured in, with artists of all ages sharing their stories of gratitude. They explored their love for their families, enjoyment of nature and its creatures, appreciation of life-saving essential workers, favorite hobbies and so much more. Our judges were delighted to see the range of creative ways students explored the prompt.

Today, we’re pleased to announce our 55 state and territory winners. To celebrate their hard work, we sent each of the 55 students Google hardware and swag. We also organized special surprise announcements in their hometowns so their families, friends and school communities could celebrate their creations in real life.

Check out to see the full gallery of all 55 state and territory winners and vote for your favorite Doodles by May 25th. Your votes will help determine who our five national finalists will be — and eventually our national winner.

Congratulations to the 2023 Doodle for Google state and territory winners!
