For the 5th year, Google is holding their Doodle 4 Google contest. They're asking kids K-12 to redesign Google's homepage logo. This year's theme is "If I could travel in time, I'd visit..." Judges for this year's contest include Katy Perry and Jordan Sparks.
There are several amazing prizes for this contest. The first place National Winner will have his or her doodle featured on the U.S. Google.com homepage. He or she will be awarded a $30,000 college scholarship to be used at the school of his or her choice, a trip to New York for an event on May 17, 2012, a Google Chromebook computer, a Wacom digital design tablet, and a t-shirt printed with his or her doodle on it. We'll also award the winner's full time school a $50,000 technology grant towards the establishment or improvement of a computer lab or technology programming.
Each of the other four National Finalists will win a $5,000 college scholarship to be used at the school of their choice, a trip to New York for the final event on May 17, 2012, a Wacom digital design tablet, and a t-shirt printed with their doodle on it.
