The Doodle For Google competition is open until March 18, 2019. Find out how your child can enter!
Do you have a young artist in your household who is ready to show off his/her skills? Then encourage them to enter the Doodle For Google contest. Submissions close in less than two weeks (March 18th), so hurry and enter! This year’s guest judges are Jimmy Fallon- host of “The Tonight Show,” Kermit the Frog, and Mandy Manning- 2018 National Teacher of the Year.
The contest is open to students in K-12, and offers the opportunity for students to take on a creative challenge with the same kind of rigor that is applied to athletic or academic pursuits. This year’s theme is: “When I grow up, I hope…” and I am looking forward to seeing what my kids come up with!
A winner representing each US State/Territory will be chosen, one of which will go on to win a $30,000 college scholarship, $50,000 technology package for their school or the non-profit of their choice, and their Doodle featured on the Google.com homepage for a day. Enter the Doodle For Google contest here.
To help inspire your child on their Doodle For Google creation, check out these Classroom activities. Google created four exercises to help inspire students and get them scribbling, scrawling, and sketching their visions. They even added a music playlist your child can listen to while working on their sketch!
My daughter spent all day brainstorming and working on her Doodle For Google submission. It was a perfect indoor activity considering the kids school had yet another snow day this month and have been stuck inside the house. I think she misses school a bit because she wants to be a teacher when she grows up! She really put some thought into her Doodle For Google drawing and utilized the Classroom Activities to create her submission!
