The "Doodle 4 Google" contest asked kids to draw what they would do if they "could do anything."

Bartholomew's entry is called "Heal All the World's Breaks," and features people fixing broken things.

"Everyone's pain is different," Bartholomew told the Galveston County Daily News. "The world is split, and it seems like a lot of people can't work together."

The winner of the contest will see their logo on Google all day May 27. Perhaps more importantly, the winner gets a $15,000 scholarship and his or her school gets a $25,000 grant.

Judges include representatives from the Sesame Street Workshop, Pixar and the groups that represent the estates of Dr. Seuss and Peanuts creator Charles Schulz.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
