Google has a competition called Doodle 4 Google, a competition where K-12 students create new designs with the homepage logo around the theme “What I Wish For The World.”
Students in U.S. schools in grades K-12 can submit doodles through their teachers. The competition is open to private schools and all homeschoolers but only teachers may submit doodles on behalf of their students.
Of course there are prizes. Lots of prizes! The National Winner gets:
- $15,000 college scholarship towards the school of their choice
- Trip to Google’s New York Office
- T-Shirt printed with the winning doodle
There are also prizes for national finalists, regional winners, and state finalists. This year there is a new new District Quality Participation Prize. The school district that that most encourages high-quality participation from its schools receives $10,000. The District Quality Participation Prize also includes a grant towards the establishment/improvement of a computer lab! For the full list of prizes and information about judging, click here.
So what are you waiting for? Register now! Schools must register by March 17, 2009 and all entries have to be entered by March 31, 2009.
