Google announced the launch of the 2016 Doodle 4 Google contest, where art-loving K-12 students from across the U.S., Guam and Puerto Rico are invited to bring their imagination to life in a doodle of the Google logo, using any medium they choose. The winning masterpiece will hang on the Google homepage for a day, where millions of people will see it.
This year’s theme for the Doodle is “What I See For the Future…” What does the future look like? Are cities built in the clouds? Is it a place where everyone gets along – even cats and dogs? Or maybe a world where nobody ever gets sick? With the Google homepage as their canvas, young artists are invited to reach into their imagination and share what they see for the future.
Google says it will have an all-star group of judges including Google’s own doodlers to select the winner.
In addition to the homepage showcase, the winner will receive $30,000 towards a college scholarship, and the opportunity to work with the Doodle team at the Googleplex in Mountain View. As an added bonus: Their home school will get to spend $50,000 on technology to help foster the next generation of professionals (and who knows, maybe future Googlers, too!).
The contest is open for entries from September 14, 2016 to December 2, 2016.
