Contest gives students chance to doodle their way to scholarship

Google has announced the return of its Doodle 4 Google competition, in which students can win a college scholarship, money for their school and a chance to see their artwork on the search engine's home page for a day.

The contest, open to K-12 students across the country, invites young artists to illustrate the Google logo using the theme, "My Best Day Ever..."

The entries will be judged first by a guest panel that includes television journalist Katie Couric; musician Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson of The Roots; writer and director Chris Sanders of Lilo & Stitch and How to Train Your Dragon; and Pendleton Ward, creator of Adventure Time.

The public will select 50 state winners, who will be flown to New York City for a national awards ceremony in May. The artwork from the state winners will be displayed at the American Museum of Natural History from May 22 to July 14.

The National Winner will be announced at the May 22 awards ceremony and the winning doodle will grace Google's home page the following day. The winner will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school.

You can find more information about the contest and download entry forms at the Doodle 4 Google web page.
