It's time again for students in grades K-12 to show off their artistic talents for Google's 6th annual "Doodle 4 Google" contest. The theme this year is "My Best Day Ever..."
I was thrilled last year when Dylan Hoffman from my hometown won, with his drawing titled, "Pirate Times".
The 50 State Winners' drawings will be hosted in a special exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City after the announcement of the National Winner on May 22, 2013 through July 14, 2013.
The prizes are pretty spectacular.
The National Winner’s doodle will be featured on the U.S. Google homepage for 24 hours on May 23rd, 2013. He or she will also get a $30,000 college scholarship, a trip to New York City for the final awards ceremony on May 22nd, 2013, a Google Chromebook, a Wacom digital design tablet, and a t-shirt printed with his or her doodle on it. We’ll also award the winner’s school a $50,000 grant towards the establishment of a computer lab or technology programming.
Each of the other 4 National Finalists will win a $5,000 educational grant to be used at the school of their choice, a trip to New York City for the final awards ceremony on May 22nd, 2013, a Wacom digital design tablet and a t-shirt with their doodle printed on it.
