Google is honoring one of the victims of the May 24 mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas by featuring his Doodle submission on their website.

Alithia Haven Ramirez, 10, submitted a drawing to the Doodle for Google 2022 contest, an annual art contest open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. In the competition, students can create and submit their own Google Doodle for a chance to feature it on Google’s homepage, as well as win scholarships and technology packages for their schools.

To honor Alithia and the other 20 shooting victims, Google created an In Memoriam page as part of its Google Doodle section, featuring a photo of Alithia and her submission, which depicts a small, dark-haired child holding a thread featuring a gray and white dog sitting on a sofa with “Google” written in objects on the wall behind them.

In a statement to FOX 7 Austin, Google says Alithia’s story and art “really touched us” and that they “wanted to honor her family’s request to share her unique talents”:

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victims and to the community of Uvalde, Texas. In Alithia Ramirez’s 2022 Doodle for Google submission, she described her desire to show the world her art and all that she can do, and we are committed to honoring those wishes and her legacy. Her story and art touched us deeply, and we wanted to honor her family’s request to share her unique talents that were so tragically taken in the wake of senseless violence.
