Help Local Mason Girl Become A Top Five National Finalist in the Doodle For Google Contest


MASON, OH -- In January, Google asked students across the U.S. to submit their ideas for the 16th annual Doodle for Google contest. For 2024, in celebration of Google’s 25th anniversary, they asked students to answer the prompt “My wish for the next 25 years…” through their art.

Google explained in its press release, "We were amazed by the submissions we received. Across ages, students showcased their visions for the future in thoughtful and unique ways. Young artists shared a range of things they wished for in the next 25 years including safer communities, technological breakthroughs, a cleaner planet, and greater unity among people. Given the challenging nature of the past few years, we were really inspired to see the many ways students have been facing the opportunities and challenges that the future brings."

Google announced on Wednesday (May 22, 2024) that Talia Perera from Mason Early Childhood Center in Ohio (K-3 Grade) is Ohio's winners. Each state and territory had one person selected to represent them among the tens of thousands of submissions.

To celebrate each of the winner's achievements, Google sent each of the 55 students Google hardware and swag, and held celebrations in their hometowns to showcase their artwork.

Below is Talia's answers to the prompt:

"This year we didn't get much snow and the weather keeps changing. In 25 years my wish is a better Earth with all seasons, vacations to the Moon and a place where animals and all humans can live in peace," Talia wrote

    Google is sharing a Keyword blogpost and updating with a full gallery of all 55 state and territory winners. Voting for the favorite Doodles opened yesterday and will be opened until June 4, 2024 at 11:59 PST.

    It's the casted vote that will  help determine who will go on to become one of our five national finalists — one, of whom, will become our national winner.
