If you have ever used Google to search for something online you have no doubt seen the constantly changing Google doodle at the top of the screen. Usually the picture corresponds to something special on that day, maybe a holiday, birthday of someone famous or influential, or an event. Other days, like today, it is just the regular Google name.

Where Do the Google Doodles Come From?
Sometimes the Google doodles come from the public during contests. Right now Google is holding a contest using pictures submitted from kids across the United States and territories. The contest submissions began in January of 2021 with the theme for the doodles being 'I am strong because...'. Doodles came from kids in kindergarten up to 12th grade.
