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.
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.

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!
