Doodle for Google’s top 55 artists share their wishes for the future

Our 16th annual Doodle for Google student contest kicked off in January. This year, to celebrate Google’s 25th birthday, we asked K-12 students from across the U.S. to create Doodles based on the prompt: “My wish for the next 25 years…”

We encouraged students to try new mediums and think outside of the box — and that creativity shone through in the tens of thousands of submissions we received. There were wishes for a healthier planet, lasting connections with friends and family, space exploration, dream jobs, technological advancements and medical breakthroughs.

Today we’re announcing the 55 state and territory winners, whose Doodles left a lasting impression on our judges. To share the good news, we held surprise celebrations for each winner in their hometown with their friends, families and educators. We also sent the winning artists Google hardware and swag.

Visit to see all the top 55 state and territory Doodles, and to vote for your favorites by June 4. Your vote will help determine our five national finalists — and ultimately, our national winner.
