Doodle 4 Google Scholarship Competition
Students have just two weeks left for submissions in the “Doodle 4 Google” 2014 Scholarship Competition. Artists have a chance to win a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grand for their school, along with having their winning artwork displayed on Google’s homepage logo for millions to see.
New York City students are invited to enter doodles inspired by this year’s 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 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!”
The contest is open until March 20th, 2014. One winner will be selected from each state.
Winners 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.
Teachers and administrators can encourage students with ideas for classroom activities, aimed to inspire students to create, collaborate and share their own designs, using ideas from http://www.google.com/doodle4google/education.html.
