Student from Wisconsin wins Google Doodle contest

SPARTA - For the second year in a row, a student from Wisconsin has their artwork featured in a place much of America will see today.  Sabrina Brady's picture is the logo on Google today.

Brady won a nationwide contest, beating out more than 130,000 other entries.  The contest theme this year was, "my best day ever."

Her drawing is one of her fondest memories.  It depicts her running to her father to welcome him home after an 18 month deployment in Iraq. 

Brady is a senior at Sparta High School in the La Crosse area.

In addition to having her picture featured today on Google's website, she gets a $30,000 scholarship and a Chromebook computer.  Her school will get a $50,000 technology grant.

Last year, a 7-year-old from Caledonia won the same contest.
