Google sets yet another platform for the artistic youth to portray their imagination in the annual “Doodle 4 Google” competition. The motivation behind the competition is to encourage youth towards giving their best at generating promising ideas for a positive change.
Google believes in innovation and trusts largely upon the youth’s imagination towards it. Like every year, this year’s Doodle 4 Google will be featuring young talent from across the country, communicating their imaginations through artwork. The theme for this year’s competition is “if I could invent one thing to make the world a better place”.
The one talent who wins this year’s competition will be generously rewarded with a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 Google for Education Technology grant for his/her school, and a chance to display his/her unique doodle on the official Google homepage for a day, which will be viewed by millions of Google visitors. This means, your young artist would get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for ensuring his/her future and also the future of thousands others who study at the winner’s school.
If you think your child has the creativity to sketch the next big idea for a positive change, I suggest you to get started with the registration process immediately. The closing date for the receipt of entries is March, 20th. Evaluating the creativity will be a panel of judges including Google teammates. Astronaut Ron Garan, Rick Riordan of Percy Jackson series, Google (x) Captain of Moonshoot Astro Teller, Directions of the LEGO movie, Robotics Designer Lee Magpili and authors Lemony Snicket and Mary Pope Osborne.
Don’t worry about the judging part, as the winner will be decided through an open public poll, however, the best 50 will be selected through the designated judges by April 29th.
Applying for the competition is not a hitch at all. You can download the application form from the Doodle 4 Google website and send the duly filled forms through email or upload it directly on the website. There is no limitation for young doodlers, however one student only gets to submit a single doodle.
