Another year, another Doodle 4 Google contest. This year’s Doodle 4 Google is the eleventh in a row. The theme of this year’s Doodle4 Google art contest is “when I grow up, I hope…”
The contest is open to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade in the United States. To enter the contest students should create a drawing that represents something that inspires them. The drawing, of course, must include the word Google somewhere within it. The artwork must be submitted on this official entry form.
This year’s national Doodle 4 Google winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology prize package for his or her school.
If you’re thinking about using some classroom time to have your students draw for the Doodle 4 Google contest, take a look at the free lesson resources that Google offers. Making drawings for the Doodle 4 Google contest might also be a good indoor recess activity during the cold days we’re having here in New England.
Two of this year’s celebrity judges are Jimmy Fallon and Kermit the Frog. Here they are to introduce the Doodle 4 Google contest.
