June 15 (UPI) -- Kentucky-based 11th grader Milo Golding has won the 2021 Doodle for Google contest.
Googles homepage will feature Golding's artwork for 24 hours. The piece shows a young child handing a balloon to another child who is wearing Google's letter "g" as a scarf.
Golding says he wants his Doodle to inspire hope. The artwork was inspired by his father, who died when Golding was 13-years-old due to a heart attack.
"I am strong because I have hope. I once asked my father how he overcame obstacles and became who he wanted to be. He replied, 'Hope, hope keeps me strong,'" Golding said.
The high schooler also runs charity Sanguine Path, where he serves children under 18-years-old who have lost loved ones by providing them with holiday gifts and school supplies.
Golding found out he won the annual contest for students from Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
Golding earned a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology package for his school.
