State Sen. Sue Rezin invites all K-12 students in the 38th District to create a Google doodle for the opportunity to win a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school. The opportunity comes with the launch of Google’s 2014 Doodle 4 Google Contest, which gives students across the U.S. the chance to display their own Google doodle on www.google.com.
Google doodles are the fun versions of the Google logo that appear on the Google homepage throughout the year in celebration of special events and people. This year’s theme is “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place…” Students can submit doodles until March 20, 2014.
On April 29th, 2014, the 50 state winning designs will be announced — among them our very own Illinois state winner. The public across the U.S can then vote for these students’ doodles. State winners will be flown to Mountain View, CA for a national awards ceremony on May 21st, where the National Winner will be announced. The winning artist’s work will be displayed on the Google homepage for a day in June and the student will win a $30,000 college scholarship, along with a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school. And for the first time ever, the winner will spend a day with the Google Doodle team to bring their doodle to life through animation.
Entry forms can be downloaded from Google’s Doodle 4 Google site and completed doodles can be submitted by mail or online. For more details, including full contest rules and entry forms go to google.com/doodle4google.
