Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Second grader Sarah Gomez-Lane's drawing of a group of colorful dinosaurs won Google's Doodle for Google 2018 competition in the United States.

Gomez-Lane came up with the drawing to correspond with the theme of "What inspires me," stating that her dream is to one day become a paleontologist.

Gomez-Lane won $30,000 towards a college scholarship while her elementary school located in Falls Church, Va., received $50,000 to spend on new technology.

Google released on YouTube a video of Gomez-Lane winning the competition and showed how she got to work with Google Doodle artists in bringing her artwork to life in an animated way.

Google's homepage features Gomez-Lane's drawing next to a play button which begins an animated sequence. The T-Rex can be made to start playing a trumpet while the Stegosaurus floats in the air after creating a bubblegum bubble.

Submissions for the 2019 Doodle for Google competition will be accepted until March 18. The 2019 competition will feature a panel of celebrity judges that includes Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, Kermit the Frog and 2018 National Teacher of the Year Mandy Manning.
