Google announces 2013 Doodle Contest, $30K scholarship

15 Jan

Does you kid love to draw? Are you a Google junkie? Need money for your kid’s college tuition? Why not combine all three in this year’s Doodle 4 Google Contest. Google will start taking entries for the annual contest on Jan. 15th. 

As a writer Google is an important piece of the creative process, plus I love to spend hours there farting around looking for cute pictures of sloths. If I think about it in a workday I must spend about two hours on working on some sort of Google search. So whenever they have a great doodle I take notice (I still think Les Paul’s birthday was the best). Each year Google announces an art contest for kids which includes a great scholarship package and not to mention their artwork becomes the Google doodle for the day. Last year’s doodle was amazing!Image

This year’s theme is “My best day every..” The winner will receive a $30,000 scholarship package, $50,000 technology grant, and other “cool” prizes (let’s hope one is at least a Google polo). Four runners up will receive a $5,000 scholarship and a trip to NYC. The art contest is open to kids in kindergarten through 12th grade, and must  depict the them around the Google logo.

Good luck!
