Doodle 4 Google contest accepting entries | Arts & Culture
(WXIA) -- It's back! The wildly popular Doodle 4 Google contest, which gives children the opportunity to create a Google Doodle, is now accepting entries.
Students in grades K-12 can enter the competition by drawing the Google logo with the theme, "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place ..."
"So many of the world's greatest inventions started out as simple doodles -- just think of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings of flying machines long before airplanes were made. We hope students will think big and surprise us with their creative ideas, just like they've done in years past!" Google said in a release.
Google will choose one finalist from each state. Last year's Georgia winner was Christine Jeong, a 5th grader at Wilson Creek Elementary School in Johns Creek. Meet Christine and see her winning doodle.
The contest winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school. The child's drawing will also be featured on the Google homepage for a whole day in June, and the winner will get the opportunity to animate the doodle at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.
