Google discovers that kids foresee a bright, happy future

Google discovers that kids foresee a bright, happy future

Last year, we asked young artists across the US to create a doodle about what they see for the future. Congratulations to Sarah Harrison from Connecticut in the 10th – 12th grade group on being named the National Finalist of the 2016-17 Doodle 4 Google Contest for her doodle “A Peaceful Future”. Google is honored to award Sarah with a $30K college scholarship and a $50K technology award for her school, as well as sharing her doodle on the Google homepage for the world to see. (See above)

These are the National Finalists;

The winning artists from this year’s contest shared powerful visions for the world of tomorrow with artwork that advocated for a cleaner environment, worldwide equality, advancing technology, and more. The next generation showed us a bright and hopeful future.

E-Waste Google

In the future we will need to turn our trash into treasure. E-Waste has lots of things we can recycle. Gold, Copper etc. This doodle is from a salvaged DVR.

I See the World as Safe, Healthy, and Energy Efficient

The time machine school is attached to the energy efficient power generator. Mobile food producer that generates multiple cells from one cell, clean water produced from air, reusable metal made from garbage and mobile hospital for emergencies will make earth safe and healthy.

New Life for the Extinct

My vision for the future is the return of extinct animals. My drawing expresses how they would be brought back to life and eventually adapt to the world of the future, from left to right: wooly mammoth, dodo bird, passenger pigeon, dinosaur, Tasmanian tiger, and the saber-toothed cat.

National finalist


The Future is Love

When I think about what I see in the future, my heart lands on simply… love. The perfect letters l-o-v-e could change the world. My watercolor and pen creation depicts a diverse, loving community willing to help and be kind to each other. I hope you enjoy!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
