Google’s Home Picture Picture Has “I Love You” ASL Sign

This year’s winning image for Doodle 4 Google features people from all different walks of life

March 31, 2017— Today Google announced the winner of their annual contest, Doodle 4 Google: Sarah Harrison from Connecticut with her drawing “A Peaceful Future.” This year’s theme was “what I see for the future:”

Notice what’s in the background? That’s right-hands making the sign for “I love you!”

Sarah Harrison explained her artwork, which features a person in a wheelchair, an amputee, a Muslim person with a Jewish person, a transgendered person, a Christian/Catholic, a person of color, and a person with a cane and shadows of hands in the background making signs of love:

My future is a world where we can all learn to love each other despite our religion, gender, race, ethnicity, or sexuality. I dream of a future where everyone is safe and accepted wherever they go, whoever they are.

When I started, I was thinking of how there’s a lot of animosity toward diverse communities of people in the world right now. So I wanted to draw something that I hoped would show that we can all get along well, and that it’s possible for us to be happy with each other. I want everyone try to be more open, accepting, and respectful to people. You don’t know what they’ve been through – and they don’t know what you’ve been through — so we all deserve respect from each other.

It was her explanation that won over the judges at Google as it fit everything that the Google company believes in.

Doodle 4 Google is a yearly contest for young artists and their schools across the United States. Each year, Google decides on a theme for the artists to interpret and submit, then Google selects a winner and uses the winning artwork on the home page. The winner gets a $30,000 college scholarship and his or her school receives $50,000 funding for their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs.

Each runner-up gets a $5,000 scholarship.

  1. Superb site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!

  2. I also believe that mesothelioma cancer is a scarce form of cancers that is commonly found in those previously exposed to asbestos. Cancerous cellular material form inside mesothelium, which is a protecting lining which covers the vast majority of body’s body organs. These cells typically form from the lining of the lungs, tummy, or the sac which encircles the heart. Thanks for giving your ideas.
