The instructions for Google’s Doodle contest was to illustrate your “best day ever.”
That part was easy for Sabrina Brady of Sparta High School in Wisconsin, who won — probably handily — Google’s annual contest for school-age artists.
Her doodle is featured on Google today.
“When I was 10 years old, my dad came home from war,” she wrote in her entry. “This was my best day ever.”
He was deployed for 18 months.
She will get a $30,000 scholarship from Google, and the thanks of a grateful nation.
Update This is the second win in a row for Wisconsin. Last year’s winner — Dyland Hoffman — came from Caledonia, WI. He was a second grader.
