6th Annual Doodle 4 Google 2013 Contest is open for submission

Calling all doodling kids, it's that time once again! Google has announced their 6th annual U.S. Doodle 4 Google competition, for K-12 students around the country to create their own “doodle” (one of the special Google logos you see on the homepage). If you read my Doodle 4 Google 2010 Awards Event recap, you'll know that the children can be really creative!

Doodle 4 Google 2013 Contest

This year’s theme: “My Best Day Ever...”

The Doodle 4 Google winning artist will see their work on the Google homepage for a day, win a $30,000 college scholarship, and win a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school. To get inspiration for a doodle, take a look at this video:

The judging starts with Googlers and a panel of guest judges. This year our judges include journalist and TV personality Katie Couric; music maestro Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson of The Roots; Chris Sanders, writer and director of Lilo & Stitch and How to Train Your Dragon; and Pendleton Ward, creator of Adventure Time; among other great creative minds.

On May 1 the public can vote for the 50 State Winners. They’ll be flown to New York City for a national awards ceremony on May 22. There the National Winner will be announced and their doodle will appear on the Google homepage the following day. In addition, all the State Winners will have their artwork on display at the American Museum of Natural History from May 22 to July 14.

Participating is easier than ever. You can download the entry forms on our Doodle 4 Google site and send in completed doodles by mail or online. All entries must be received by March 22 with a parent or guardian’s signature. Full classrooms are encouraged to participate too. There’s no limit to the number of doodles that come from any one school or family... just remember, only one doodle per student.
