Does your kid have amazing art talents? Enter him or her in the fourth annual ‘Doodle 4 Google’ logo competition. This year’s theme is “What I’d Like to Do Someday…” which encourages kids to “dream about future possibilities” and “exercise their creative imaginations.”
The contest is only open to students in the U.S. While kids from kindergarten through 12th grade can enter the contest, just one national winner will be chosen to have the winning doodle displayed on the Google homepage on May 20, 2011. Plus, the chosen winner will win a $15,000 college scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for the school he or she attends. Three national finalists, 40 regional finalists, and 400 state finalists will also be chosen to receive various prizes.
Parents can help kids register for the contest by March 2, 2011 and all entries (one per child) must be submitted by March 16, 2011. This year’s judges include celebrities such as actress Whoopi Goldberg, Garfield comic strip cartoonist Jim Davis, children’s book authors Beverly Cleary and Jeff Kinney, Olympic ice skating gold medalist Evan Lysacek, and more.
Inspire your kids to start dreaming and start creating!
