Google doodle scholarship deadline approaching
Students have two weeks left to enter into Doodle 4 Google 2014. The winning artwork will be showcased on Google’s homepage logo for millions to see and the artist will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school.
The contest is open until March 20th. Washington state students from K-12 are invited to enter doodles inspired by the theme:
“If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place….”
In announcing the contest, Google’s blog noted:
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!
A winner will be selected from each state. Last year’s Washington state winner was Eva Lindberg from Medina Elementary. The winner selected from the state honorees will have their art displayed on Google.com in June and will become an honorary Google doodler for a day and animate their doodle with a Google team in Mountain View, CA. And to help teachers and administrators, Google provides ideas for classroom activities that inspire students to imagine, create, share and collaborate.
