Google Announces Doodle 4 Google Kids Art Contest

Dylan Hoffman's 2012 Doodle 4 Google winning entry.

Does your kid have what it takes to draw for Google?

Today Google announced the launch of its 2014 Doodle 4 Google competition. It’s an annual art contest for kids in K-12 with big stakes: The winner’s Doodle will replace the standard Google logo on the company’s homepage for a day.

“Doodle 4 Google is the chance for young artists to think and dream big,” Google explains on its company blog. “Our theme this year, ‘If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place…’ is all about curiosity, possibility and imagination.”

To enter, your child will need to draw a Google Doodle – basically, redraw the Google logo – to fit this year’s theme. Entries will be judged on artistic merit, creativity (use of the Google logo) and theme communication.

Google will pick one winner from each state, all of whom will be invited to visit Google’s Mountain View, California headquarters. A public vote will then be held to narrow the field down to one grand prize winner, who will help animate their Doodle with the Google team. The winning Doodle will be featured front and center on Google’s homepage on June 9, 2014.

There’s more at stake than just fame, though. This year’s Doodle 4 Google contest winner will be awarded a Google Chromebook, an Android tablet and a $30,000 college scholarship. The winner’s school, meanwhile, will get a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant.

You have plenty of time to get the creative juices flowing, but don’t delay too much. This year’s submission deadline is Thursday, March 20.

I can’t wait to see what the kids come up with this time!  We actually released a children’s book today which is illustrated by a top 5 overall finalist from last year’s contest!

We haven’t had anyone review the book/app yet if you are interested!
