I’d like to encourage your scholar to submit the Doodle 4 Google Scholarship. The Doodle 4 Google scholarship is where students create a doodle of the Google homepage and a 50 word statement on their doodle. Materials that can be used are anything that you want. Including pens/pencils, art supplies, or illustration software. These doodles are exactly what we see on the homepage of Google.
Doodle 4 Google wants students to identify examples of inspiration, ideas, actions, events, and quotes that embody what it means to inspire. The 2019 Doodle for Google theme is: When I grow up, I hope… This year’s theme invites you to show us what you hope for in your future. Classrooms on Mars? Shoes that can fly? Food for everyone? A pill that cures everything? Take your ideas and put them into your Doodle!
Eligibility: K-12th grade can apply
Scholarship opens: January 7th, 2019
Scholarship DUE: March 18, 2019 at 8 PM
Finalist will win a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology scholarship for their school campus
I recommend to not submit an application until your doodle is complete. Also, keep in mind parents and or teachers may submit the application on the students behalf.
