Google's fourth annual Doodle 4 Google competition started up this week, and it is open to students from kindergarten through 12th grade in the United States. The young designer who submits the winning entry will earn a $15,000 scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for his or her school.
“In the spirit of thinking big, our theme this year is ‘What I’d like to do someday…’—giving all of the talented young dreamers an opportunity to flex their creative muscles.” said Marissa Mayer, Google’s vice president of consumer products, in a blog post. “We know this crop of students will be the generation of tomorrow’s leaders and inventors, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with.”
Entries will be judged by a panel that includes Google employees, actress Whoopi Goldberg, ice skater Evan Lysacek, and Garfield creator Jim Davis. The top 40 entries will be put on display at New York City’s Whitney Museum of American Art. Parents and teachers can register entries through March 2 and doodles are to be submitted by March 16. The winning doodle will be displayed on the Google homepage on May 20.
