A sixth grader from Brooklyn is making her mark and she's doing it in a colorful way. Gwen McNamara is the winner of the New York State's Doodle "4" Google Competition. Now she's headed to the national championships and needs our help to win the title and appear on the Google homepage.

A peek at Gwen's artwork:  https://doodles.google.com/d4g/vote.html . My doodle represents my hopes that future children will be able to look up and see stars and planets without pollution and smoke blocking out the sky. I hope for a world where people care for our planet, so that generation after generation can see the stars.
