Did you know that Google is hosting a drawing contest for kids? Apparently they’ve been doing this for the past six years, but I just found out about it yesterday. Okay, so I’m a little late to the game. But there are still about 2 weeks left to submit entries so I thought it was worthwhile to post about (plus, now you’ll have a heads-up for next year!).
It’s called Doodle 4 Google, and it’s open to all K-12 kids in the U.S.
This year, we ask students to exercise their creative imaginations around the theme, “My Best Day Ever…” One talented student artist will see their artwork appear on the Google homepage, receive a $30,000 college scholarship, and a $50,000 technology grant for their school along with some other cool prizes!
Here’s a short video about it:
Want to see how many submissions your state has entered so far? Check out this interactive map. Looks like North Dakota is still in the lead, while Illinois isn’t even in the top 10. We’ve got some work to do!
Parents can submit their child’s art, and teachers can submit their students’ art. The only limitation is one drawing per child, but, for example, a teacher could submit a drawing by each child in her class. Good luck, and let’s all get doodling!
