With his Doodle “Finding Hope,” Milo from Kentucky received first place in this year’s competition. Milo has received a $30,000 Google college scholarship as well as a $50,000 Google technology prize for his school.
Milo Golding, the winner of the Google Doodle for 2021 competition in the United States, is the subject of today’s Google Doodle. The Google Doodle is a one-time change of the company’s homepage logo that commemorates holidays, events, accomplishments, and historical figures. It’s usually used to refer to well-known persons or events. The Doodle recognizes a Kentucky-based 11th grader on June 15 in a break from tradition.
The Doodle for Google competition has a different topic each year, and this year was “I am strong because…” Students in grades K-12 from across the country created and submitted artwork that reflects their perspective of the theme.
Following that, Google chose 54 ideas, one from each state and US territory, and held a poll to decide which Doodle was the best. Finally, the Doodles that received the most votes in each grade level were chosen as finalists to be reviewed by Google’s panel of judges.
Golding was announced as the winner of the 13th annual Doodle for Google competition on NBC’s Today program on Monday after his artwork was picked as the winner out of 54 state and territory winners.
Doodle for Google is an annual art contest for students in grades K-12 in which they are invited to design their own Doodle in the hopes of having it featured on Google.com.
Scholarships and technology items for their school are also awarded to the winner. After winning the contest, Golding received a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology package for his school.
A mixed-race child kneels in the act of handing a balloon to a smaller youngster while tying a scarf around the latter’s neck in the Doodle.
He channeled his trauma into helping others and through his Sanguine Path charity, he supports children who find themselves in a similar scenario.
This scenario is accompanied by a few additional bright, colorful moments that stand out against a black and white backdrop that seems to symbolize the perplexing sentiments that many of us face in life. Milo revealed his personal connection to the Doodle’s fundamental message in an interview.
“My parents are both immigrants. My father came to the United States from Jamaica, and my mother came from China. I grew up in a little town in eastern Kentucky, and once my father died, my life’s purpose changed dramatically. It’s essential to me to aid other youngsters in my neighbourhood who may have experienced a similar situation.
Sanguine Path is a nonprofit that I founded a few years ago. We provide Christmas and birthday presents, care packages, and back-to-school kits to youngsters 18 and under who have lost loved ones or have been affected by hard situations. Children can be referred to the programme by family members, school personnel, grief counsellors, or parents and guardians.“
Milo will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 donation to his school or charitable organization of choice, and a Google hardware and apparel bundle as a prize.
