(KUTV) — If you're an avid Google user, you've probably noticed the changing artwork on the site's page.

A Park City student is in the running to have her drawing displayed on Google.

Tenth grader Michal Patton is the Utah winner for the Doodle 4 Google contest. Represetatives from Google flew to Utah to recognize Patton in front of all of her peers on Thursday.

“I feel like a minor celebrity,” Patton said.

Her nature-incorporated sketch was meant to highlight all that Utah has to offer. Google said they liked her retrospection of nature and thought is was a great depiction of the state.

8 high-profile judges including actors and pro athletes selected each state's winner. Ultimately, Google will narrow it down to five finalists and then one winner who will have their drawing showcased website.

Patton said she never expected her drawing to be selected.

“I was just submitting it because, man, the Doodle 4 Google is fun! Why not enter?!”

Patton created the drawing with Photoshop, using a stylus and a tablet to sketch the whole thing digitally.

Starting on May 7, you can vote for Patton's drawing to move forward in the competition on doodle4google.com.
