Friendship Around the World by Miriam Elizabeth Lowery, Age 5

Doodle 4 Google is a competition where students K-12 are invited to try their hands at designing a new homepage logo based on the original Google design. With this year's theme, "What I Wish for the World," Google is asking U.S. students to think big and dream big, considering all the recent developments seen the world over.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Work Together to Harness Wind by Austin Gage Druid, Age 12

Cleaner Oceans for the World by Elizabeth Keto, Age 13

I Wish by Meaghan Parker, Age 17

Gilding Over our Great Loving Earth by Iysis Ruiz, Age 9

Lets Heal the Planet by Zoe Brants, Age 12

One World One God by Sameek Das, Age 8

Houses for All by Michael Nloria, Age 8

Time to Go Home by Demitri Miller, Age 18

To witness these students take on such big topics (world peace, a healthier environment, freedom of expression, religious unity!) , gives me hope for the world. Please support these talented students by voting.

Choose the National Finalists by voting online between May 11th - 18th. The winner will appear on on May 21st.

I know -- it's so crazy! These kids have more talent at age 5 than a lot of adults. I can't get over it!
