The 11th annual Doodle for Google contest is launching today, January 8.
The contest is open to students in grades K-12 in all 50 states plus Puerto Rico and Guam. Participants are encouraged to create their own interpretation of the Google logo.
The contest is open to entries until March 18. There will be one winner from each of the 50 states and territories along with one national finalist from each of the five grade categories.
Then, one of the participants will go on to become the national winner.
The winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, $5,000 technology package for their school or non-profit organization, and their artwork will be featured on the Google homepage for a day.
Last year’s winner, 1st grader Sarah Gomez-Lane of Virginia, is currently featured on Google’s homepage.
