Young Artist Wins 2024 Doodle for Google National Competition

Maisie Derlega, a young artist with a talent for capturing heartfelt moments, has been named the 2024 Doodle for Google National Winner. Her winning Doodle, which envisions her wish for the next 25 years, celebrates the enduring tradition of family dinners.

In describing her artwork, Maisie shared, “Every Sunday night is filled with chaos, laughter, and the smell of food in my household. The standing invitation goes to any friends and family in the area. As my life grows and changes, my wish for the next 25 years is that this tradition remains a constant.”

Maisie’s Doodle, which features a diverse group of family and friends enjoying dinner, embodies the essence of warmth and togetherness. She can be seen proudly holding a certificate with her artwork, standing in front of a larger version of her piece, flanked by colorful balloons in yellow, red, blue, and green.

Reflecting on her inspiration for the Doodle, Maisie considered the prompt, “My wish for the next 25 years…” and thought about the impending changes that college life would bring. Despite these changes, her artwork underscores her desire to maintain the familial bonds that have been a cornerstone of her life.

As the national winner, Maisie has been awarded a $55,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology package for her school, providing her with resources to further her education and continue her artistic journey.

Maisie’s achievement is a testament to her talent and the meaningful connections she values.
