Doodle 4 Google™
Google often offers new, sometimes interactive doodles on their homepage. Often paying homage to a significant person or event in our history, doodle topics range from artists like Robert Indiana to authors, holidays and new discoveries in science.
Doodle 4 Google™ is a competition open to K-12 students to encourage and celebrate the creativity of young people. Students submit their own Google doodle based on a yearly theme and the winner takes home a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school. This year's theme is “If I could travel in time, I’d visit...”
Works from the ten Doodle 4 Google™ 2012 Indiana finalists will be displayed Star Studio. In conjunction with the exhibition, art activities inspired by the contest will be planned for the IMA Community Day on July 7.
Submissions for doodles were received until March 23. A team of judges, including a few famous names like Katy Perry and Jordin Sparks will help choose the top doodles. On May 2, Google will give the final vote to the public, and one winner from each grade group will be chosen by a public vote. First prize will be awarded to the doodler on May 17, and the winning doodle will be showcased on google.com on May 18.
