Doodle for Google Contest Ends at Midnight ET March 22, 2013

Calling all artistic students!  Enter the Doodle for Google contest and your art could be on Google’s home page!  You could win a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for your school among other cool prizes!

To enter, create a Google Doodle around the theme “My Best Day Ever…”   Be sure your illustration incorporates the word “Google.”  Click here to download the entry form.  The entry MUST be on the official form.  Entries can be submitted by upload through Google or by mail.  Click here for FAQs about the contest.  Teachers can download an educator’s guide, classroom poster, and official pamphlet here.

Judging will be based on 3 criteria:

  • Artistic merit: based on grade group and artistic skill
  • Creativity: based on the representation of the theme and use of the Google logo
  • Theme communication: how well the theme is expressed in the artwork and the supporting statement

Doodles that contain copyrighted images will automatically be disqualified.  Only ONE doodle per artist will be accepted.

The American Museum of Natural History will host a special exhibition of the 50 State Winners in New York City, after the announcement of the National Winner on May 22, 2013 through July 14th, 2013.
