Google is looking for some creative student designers in their “Doodle 4 Google” contest:
Welcome to Doodle 4 Google, a competition where we invite K-12 students to play around with our homepage logo and see what new designs they come up with. This year we’re inviting U.S. kids to join in the doodling fun, around the intriguing theme “What I Wish for the World.”
The competition is open to U.S. students and judging will take place across 10 regions. The deadline for schools to register is March 17, entries are due March 31. Read more details on the Judging and Prizes page. Lots of prizes are available, but one national winner will:
win a $15,000 college scholarship to be used at the school of their choice, a trip to the Google New York Office, a laptop computer, and a t-shirt printed with their doodle. We’ll also award the winner’s school a $25,000 technology grant towards the establishment/improvement of a computer lab.
Only teachers can submit Doodles on behalf of students, and teachers must register on behalf of their school by March 17th.
This YouTube video about last year’s competition gives a good overview of the contest. What a great opportunity for your students to show their creative and artistic abilities!
Hat tip to the Classen SAS website for info about Doodle 4 Google. 🙂
