“Since the beginning of time, ideas big and small, practical and playful, have started out as doodles.”
“If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place…”
Fifty state finalists will get an all-expense-paid trip to Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California for a final awards ceremony. One lucky student artist will see their artwork appear on the Google homepage, receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant.
Be sure to get all the young artists in your life doodling soon because entries must be received by March 20th 2014.

Last year’s theme was “My Best Day Ever … ,” and the Sparta High School senior’s winning work — titled “Coming Home” — shows Sabrina running toward her father upon his return from an 18-month deployment in Iraq.
To get your artists’ creative juices flowing, Google is partnering with Discovery Education to offer videos and activities for teachers and parents.
They’re also offering interactive “Meet the Doodler” Connected Classrooms sessions where kids can meet Google Doodlers, learn about their process from idea to Doodle, and ask questions along the way.
To enter the competition simply download the application form, print it, doodle your version of the Google logo based off this year’s theme and submit online or by mail. Check their FAQ page, which should answer any questions you may have.
Try the activities listed here to exercise your imagination – whether you enter the competition or not!
