Do you Doodle?

By Ashley Caputo January 15, 2013

It’s about that time again for K-12 students around the country to start doodling a Google logo for a chance to win the 6th annual Doodle 4 Google contests.

Google’s doodles  have been used to wish Harry Houdini a happy birthday, celebrate the inventor of the guitar, honor the Mayor of Silicon Valley and wish the country a Happy Halloween. With over 15,000 created for homepages around the world, Google takes pride in its doodle celebrations.

The “National Winner of Doodle 4 Google” will have a chance for their logo to be used on Google.com. Along with cyberspace fame, they will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school.

Fifty state winners and four national finalists will receive a $5,000 college scholarship, a trip to New York to attend the final awards ceremony and a Wacom digital tablet. The rest of the 250 state finalists will have their designs featured on the Doodle 4 Google website.

For this contest, coming in second place doesn’t seem half bad!

Students will enter their entries until May 22 and the winner will be decided by an online vote on May 22.  In the meantime, let’s take a look back and check out our favorite Google Doodles.
