Doodle 4 Google
Want to get your students involved in a fun and inspiring project that encourages them to dream big? Tell them about Doodle 4 Google, a competition where young artists design their own versions of the Google logo around a specific theme.
This year's theme is, "If I Could Do Anything, I Would...". The winning student's school gets $25,000 for a new computer lab, and he or she wins a $15,000 college scholarship and the chance to have his or her design on the Google.com homepage for a day for millions of people to see. And the 40 Regional Finalists will be flown to New York for a final awards presentation at Google's New York Office on May 26, 2010, and will have their designs exhibited at the Smithsonian's, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York from May 27 to July 8, 2010.
Google allows each public or private school to submit up to 6 doodle entries, and homeschools can also submit up to 2 doodles per school.
