Hey kids, Google wants your doodles

Posted By on Tue, Feb 25, 2014 at 2:24 PM

Google was once just an idea that lived in the minds of two students at Stanford. But Larry Page and Sergey Brin brought their idea to life and changed the world, and now Google is asking kids to share their innovative, world-changing ideas in the 2014 Doodle 4 Google competition.

Google is looking for students grades K-12 to create a doodle about “If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place...”

Not only is this competition an excuse to get creative, but the winner earns some awesome perks. The top doodler gets their creation displayed on Google’s homepage for 24 hours, receives a $30,000 scholarship and earns a $50,000 grant for a tech lab in their school. And the fun doesn’t end there — the winner also gets a trip to go hang out with the doodle team at Google’s headquarters in California as they bring the winning doodle to life.

With a state finalist selected from each state, the Inland Northwest has double the opportunity to have its young talent represented. So, friends, family and teachers — spread the word to the little artists in your life. All submissions are due March 20, so let’s get doodling!

Here’s more information on how to get involved. And if you’re a teacher, here are some lesson plans for bringing Doodle 4 Google to the classroom.
