Google Invites Kids To Dream Big for $30,000 Scholarship Prize

Know a kid who’s got artistic talent? He or she could win a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 tech grant for his or her school.

Google is asking students from kindergarten through 12th grade to create their own Google doodle [1] (the doodle is the special logo you see at the top of the search engine’s homepage for holidays and special occasions) with the theme of “My Best Day Ever.” In addition to the scholarship prize, the winning artist’s work will be displayed on the Google homepage for a day.

This year’s judges include journalist Katie Couric, Ahimir Thompson of The Roots and writer and director Christ Sanders. They’ll narrow the field to 50 State Winners and then the public will vote.

You can download entry forms by clicking here on the [2] Doodle 4 Google site [2] and send in completed doodles by mail or submit online. All entries must be received by March 22 with the signature of a parent or guardian.
