Doodle 4 Google is Back for 2011

As announced earlier this week by Google, Doodle 4 Google is back again this year. Doodle 4 Google is a student drawing contest open to all K-12 students in the U.S. The contest asks students to create drawings, on 8.5" x 11" paper, that redesign the Google homepage logo while responding to the prompt "what I'd like to do someday."

This year Google is increasing the opportunities to participate in the contest by allowing parents to register their children if they're not registered through school. Students involved in The Boys & Girls Clubs of America and The Girl Scouts will also be able to register for Doodle 4 Google.

This year's winner will receive a $15,000 college scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for his or her school. Registration is open now and closes on March 2nd. All drawings must be submitted by March 16.

Applications for Education
Other than being an opportunity for students to win a scholarship, this year's contest prompt is a good one for getting students to think about and envision their futures.
