Google Doodle contest: Attention all students: do you think you are creative? Do you enjoy drawing or doodling in your spare time? Would you be interested in sharing your artwork with the whole world? Well now here is your chance. Google is inviting you to take part in the 2018 Doodle 4 Google contest, and create an uplifting doodle that tells the world “What inspires me”. From crayons to clay, graphic design, or even food, young artists can utilize any materials to bring their creation to life. Like all Google Doodles, each doodle must incorporate the letters G-o-o-g-l-e. One national winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology package for their school/non-profit organization, and a behind the scenes experience at the Google Headquarters in California with the Doodle team to transform their Doodle into an interactive experience on Google.com. If you are interested in the contest see Mr. Madonna for an entry form. All submissions for the contest must be returned to Mr. Madonna by March 1st.
