Students Invited to Redesign Google Homepage Logo for Millions To See

For the fifth year, Google is announcing Doodle 4 Google, a contest where students in grades K-12 across the country use their artistic talents to think big and redesign Google’s homepage logo for millions to see. This year’s theme -- “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…” -- encourages students to harness their curiosity to imagine the past, present, or future on the blank canvas of Google’s homepage. The Doodle 4 Google student contest inspires the leaders and inventors of tomorrow to push the limits of their creativity with the Google logo as their canvas.

This year’s winner will not only have their doodle on Google.com for millions of people to see, but will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his/her school.

From January 18 through March 23, 2012, students throughout the U.S. will be able to submit their doodles. Judges, including Katy Perry, Jordin Sparks, and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, co-creator and director of Disney Channel’s hit Phineas and Ferb cartoon show will select the top 50 designs.

The top 50 doodles will be displayed on the contest site beginning May 2nd and people across the country will be able to vote for their favorites. In addition, the New York Public Library as well as local museums throughout the U.S. will exhibit the best doodles from their states after the national winner is announced.

In 2011, 7-year-old Matteo Lopez, a second grader from South San Francisco, CA, won for his amazing space-themed doodle expressing his wish to travel into outer space. He was among the 107,000 student doodle entries received.
