Google's 4th Annual Doodle 4 Google Contest Now Open

Google has announced the launch of their fourth annual Doodle 4 Google contest. The annual contest invites students grade K-12 to design the homepage doodle. Entrants receive the chance to take home a $15,000 scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for their schools.

Every year Google chooses a theme for talent young people to work towards and this year's theme is “What I’d like to do someday...”

Changes to Doodle 4 Google in 2011
  • Parents Can Register Their Kids: This year, based on your feedback, we are expanding the contest. Now, in addition to schools, parents and legal guardians can directly register their K-12 students in the contest and submit their doodles. Check with your child’s school or After School Programs first to see if they are participating, since we only allow one entry per student. As always, public, private and home schools can register on behalf of their students.
  • After School Programs: We are working with two After School Programs: Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Girl Scouts of the USA to register students.
  • No Cap On Doodles Per School: There is no cap on how many doodles each school, After School Program, or family can send in. Just remember, only one doodle per child.
  • A Variety Of Guest Judges: This year, a group of guest judges, including Whoopi Goldberg, Actress/Comedian/TV Talk Show Host, Jim Davis, Creator of "Garfield", and Evan Lysacek, Gold Medalist for Ice Skating, and several other well known cartoonists, animators and illustrators will help judge the contest and attend the final awards ceremony to personally congratulate our winners. 

For more details, check out, including full contest rules. To get started, whether you’re a teacher or a parent, register your student(s) by March 2, 2011 and get to working on those designs as all entries must be postmarked by March 16, 2011.
