Doodle for Google 2023 US Winner

Young artists from all around the world now use the Google Doodle competition as a prestigious platform to show off their creativity and talent. In 2023, the US arose successful, with a young school artist catching the pith of her remarkable viewpoint. Let’s look at the remarkable winning artwork and learn about its story.

A Washington middle school student will have her work of art included on Google’s homepage Tuesday for 24 hours in the wake of winning the national Doodle for Google contest.

Google Doodle artwork by Rebecca Wu, titled “My Sweetest Memories,” is a tribute to her sisters, whom Wu said she loves and sometimes doesn’t like, but she couldn’t imagine living without them.

Rebecca Wu, a 12-year-old, is the national winner of the U.S. 2023 Doodle for Google contest. Along with representatives from 55 U.S. states and territories, she served as the Washington state representative. She won a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology package for her school in the fifteenth annual event. “I am grateful for…,” is this year’s contest theme for students in grades K-12.

Students in grades K-12 across the United States, as well as the four U.S. territories of Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, are eligible to participate in the Doodle competition. The task: design a Doodle for a chance to appear on Google’s website.

The theme for this year was “I am grateful for…” Rebecca Wu explained that this is what her Doodle represents.

The artwork by Rebecca Wu, named “My Best Memories,” is a recognition of her sisters, who Wu said she loves the most and couldn’t think of a day without them.

Rebecca Wu, the winner, is illustrated in the center of the artwork, with her two sisters Anna, who is six years old, and Esther, who is four years old, on each side. Under the sun, where vines and flowers spell out the word Google, the three of them are sipping hot chocolate. She talked about her design:

“Sometimes I love them, and sometimes I dislike them very much, but I can’t imagine my life without my sisters. I have learned to be a little bit more patient with them, and they have had an enormous impact on me. We help to inspire each other and to help each other grow like the vines and flowers in my picture. I am never lonely with them, and they can cheer me up. I am grateful for them and all that they have done for me. In this drawing, we are having a fun time drinking hot chocolate, which is one of my fondest memories. The rainbow in the background symbolizes one of the first things I helped one of my sisters draw. In one of my family pictures, my sisters (sitting next to me) and I (the one in the middle) are sitting in flowers with a background that I drew, so I thought it would be fun to reference that by drawing us sitting flowers here. The word “Google” is related to the stems of flowers and vines, also following the flower/garden theme. My drawing is composed of all our happiest memories to show just how grateful I am for them.”

The fact that Rebecca Wu won this prestigious competition demonstrates both the enormous potential of young artists to inspire change and the transformative power of art. She promotes the bonds between siblings and reminds us of the beauty that can be found in accepting relationships through her creative expression. Young viewers around the world will undoubtedly be influenced for the rest of their lives by her talent and inspirational message.

Rebecca Wu honors her little sisters

When Rebecca Wu was given the theme, “I am Grateful For…,” all she could think about were her sisters, who have helped her develop as a person and focus on the good things in life instead of the bad.

The winning artwork is a graphical representation of Rebecca and her two sisters on one or the other side, with every one of them tasting hot chocolate in the middle of a growing garden. The letters in Google are made to seem to be vines and flowers twined around each other.

As to Rebecca Wu’s relationship with her sisters, Rebecca said, she loves them however much she hates them, yet she was unable to imagine her life without them.

“I have learned to be a little bit more patient with them, and they have had an enormous impact on me. We help to inspire each other and to help each other grow like the vines and flowers in my picture,” she shared with Google.

Breakdown of the winning Doodle for Google 2023 in detail

Rebecca Wu’s relationship with her siblings is exemplified by the deep significance of each part of her artwork.

One of the best memories the three of them have is sipping hot chocolate, and one of the first things she taught her sister to draw was the rainbow in the background.

The rest of the vines were in keeping with the overall theme of a garden, and the drawing also features flowers—a replica of an actual family photo with her sisters featuring real flowers.

“My drawing is composed of all our happiest memories to show just how grateful I am for them,” the Doodle for Google winner said.
