You know the fun Google logos that adorn the search engine page every now and then? For the last couple of years, Google has challenged kids, kindergartners through high school seniors, to try their hands at doodling a Google too. (That’s Grace Moon, the 2008 contest winner, in the photo.) Now, they’re launching their third Doodle 4 Google competition and the prizes are pretty fantastic: a $15,000 college scholarship for the national winner, laptops, trips to New York and technology awards for 8 lucky schools.
The theme is “If I Could Do Anything, I Would …” Contest entries come in via classrooms. Teachers need to register their classrooms by March 17, and submissions are due by March 31. Then check back on May 27, because the glorious winning doodle – chosen by a team of judges that includes Eric Carle (yes, that Eric Carle) and artists from Pixar and Sesame Street Workshop – graces the Google home page.
