Google is once again holding a contest where K-12 students in the US can Doodle 4 Google and have their drawing appear on the search engine home page. Winners also win a scholarship for themselves and a grant for their school.
Here are the details from the Google blog:
The theme for this year’s contest is “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…”. That could mean visiting a past, present or future setting—whether it’s traveling back in time to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, to the future to witness everyday space travel, or to just a few moments ago to relive a poignant experience.
We’re also partnering with Crayola this year and the winning doodler’s artwork will appear on a special edition of the 64-crayon box—a first!
Participating is easier than ever, since we’ve eliminated the registration step. All you need to do is submit your child’s or student’s artwork by March 20 with a signed and completed entry form.
Last year there was more than 100 000 entries (and they’re expecting it to be even bigger this year. So, yes, the chances are slim but the rewards are great. Speaking as someone who won a longshot contest (my son is currently featured on a Cheerios box), what have you got to lose?
