Now is the time to show off your talent to the world! We’re going to start by entering your first contest! The theme this year is “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…”
Create my own Google logo using the specified theme and enter the Doodle-4-Google contest.
First you need a template and there are three to choose from no logo, shaded logo, or a dotted logo. You also need to fill out an entry form. These will be printed for you in class; however, you can print them at home and bring them in or visit the website for them. Please keep in mind that the school does not have a color printer so if you want to use the shaded logo, you will have to print it on your own.
The 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.
Each of the other 50 State Winners will win a trip to New York for the final event on May 17, 2012 and a t-shirt printed with their doodles on it. All 50 Regional Finalists will also have their doodle displayed in a special exhibit at the New York Public Library.
Each of the other State Finalists will receive an official winner’s certificate and be featured on the Doodle 4 Google contest web site.
