Doodle 4 Google: Graphic Design Contest Just 4 Kids!


Google is calling all aspiring graphic artists and graphic illustrators to submit a home page logo for Google!  Imagine that!  But you have to be a kid; chronologically a kid.

What Google wants you to to is to create a Google logo based on the theme "If I could do anything I would..."

  • Invent a pill that would make everyone healthy?
  • Build and drive race cars?
  • Become a veterinarian?

Yes, the possibilities are endless. Think of that one thing you would do if you could and then create a way to express that in a Google logo. 

Last year's winner was Christin Engelberth, a sixth-grader at  Bernard Harris Middle School in San Antonio, Texas.  The theme of the contest last year was "What I Wish For The World," and Ms. Engleberth's wish was "A New Beginning."  Here is her winning logo....

 

 

The Google competition is open to U.S. schools, grades K -12.  Many great prizes will be awarded in categories by grade.  There will be State, Regional, and National Finalists before the winner is chosen.  The winner will receive a $15,000 college scholarship "to be used at the school of his/her choice, a trip to the Google New York office for an event on May 26, 2010, a laptop computer, a Wacom digital design tablet, and a t-shirt printed with his/her doodle on it. We’ll also award the winner’s school a $25,000 technology grant towards the establishment/improvement of a computer lab.”

 

 

Students must submit their Doodles through their schools, which must register before March 17, 2010. (See Contest Rules) The only registration forms that will be accepted are from teachers, school employees or parents of home-schooled students.  Schools can submit up to 6 student entries. All Doodles are due by March 31, 2010.

Students are required to submit their Doodles on standard white 8.5 x 11 inch paper.  Google provides five choices of logo templates for the student's Doodles.

For complete information, visit the Doodle 4 Google announcement, read it carefully, and make sure you follow all of the links to further information when you're there.  And don't forget to checkout the Technology Booster Awards for schools who submit student entries before March 10, 2010.  It's an early bird special!

I am a fifth grader and I loved drawing my picture but I didn't win because of this girl. In scirnce we are studying the solar system and she made a purple sun with planets around it and didnt even draw the word Google and she won just because thats what we are studying. Anyways it was pretty fun and that is what matters...Right?

Right

Right! But I think you should've been included in the contest and it depends on the theme not what you are learning about. Sorry kid :(
