Students invited to Doodle for Google | Arts & Culture
Google is calling all kids to enter the 2014 Doodle for Google competition. Students from kindergarten to 12th grade are invited to enter their doodles interpreting the theme “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place…”
Entries are being accepted until March 20th, and Google is making it easy for kids, parents and teachers to get involved. Anyone can submit the doodle on behalf of the child as long as it has their parent’s signature on the entry form. This means, that teachers can submit doodles for their whole class. Google also has a variety of classroom activities available so that teacher can incorporate Doodle for Google in the classroom.
The national winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship as well as a $50,000 Google for Education grant for their school’s technology program or computer lab. Four national finalists will also receive college scholarships, and each of the 50 state winners will get an Android tablet as well as a t-shirt with their doodle printed on it.
The national winner’s doodle will be featured on the Google homepage for 24 hours on June 9th.
