Calling all young creatives! -Doodle for Google-

Do you have or know a creative school age student who loves to doodle? You can encourage them to enter Doodle for Google! It’s a competition where Google invites K-12 students to play around with the homepage logo and see what new designs they come up with. This year’s intriguing theme is “What I Wish for the World.”

The National Winner will win a $15,000 college scholarship to be used at the school of their choice, a trip to the Google New York Office for an event on May 20, 2009, a laptop computer, and a t-shirt printed with their doodle. We’ll also award the winner’s school a $25,000 grant towards the establishment/improvement of a computer lab. The winning doodle will also be featured on the Google homepage on May 21, 2009.

“These are exciting times and both our country and the world are on the brink of significant change. At Google we believe in thinking big, and dreaming big, and we can’t think of anything more important than encouraging students to do the same.”
