“I show kindness by sticking together with my friends in tough times. I drew people coming together and not thinking about the outside but being together because of their personality," read Sara's statement.

The doodle depicts six girls of different skin colors, body types, hair styles and fashion choices, holding hands as friends.

Sharon said the artwork highlights how kindness can be practiced through "friendship and inclusion."

Sharon's doodle received the most votes out of 54 submissions from students across the country.

She will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, and Vaughn Elementary will receive $50,000.

On behalf of the State of Texas, I want to say how proud we are of Sharon’s achievement, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this bright young Texan.”
