See the National Finalists:
"The thing that inspires me the most is the work of others. When I see an amazing art piece made by someone else, it motivates me to improve my own art. In my doodle, I drew my big sister, whose artwork has inspired me to draw since I was young."
Pennsylvania, 8-9 Grade Group
"Nature has existed long before we have and therefore is where we draw our inspiration from. The word "inspire" means to "breathe in" and the wonders of nature are where I breathe in and find meaning in my mathematics, science, music and writing."
Florida, 10-12 Grade Group
"The things on my doodle are my favorite dinosaurs. Dinosaurs inspire me to study more to be a paleontologist. The shovel is for my future job!"
Virginia, K-3 Grade Group
Intergalactic Space Exploration Roller coaster
"I am very inspired about space travel. I want to explore the galaxy and visit different planets and create a rollercoaster through our universe!"
Texas, 4-5 Grade Group
Ideas from Fashion
"Fashion inspires me because of how you can reflect your own personal style into just a single garment. Inspiration can be drawn from anywhere and can show any sort of idea. Whatever you can imagine!"
Rhode Island, 6-7 Grade Group
