Is your child Google’s next great doodler?

Google is searching for its next Doodle 4 Google champ! The annual Doodle 4 Google competition invites students K-12 to send in their masterpieces and the winning doodles created by these budding artists will take over the Google homepage, seen by millions. Last year’s winning doodle, at left, was made by 7-year-old Dylan Hoffman from Caledonia, Wisconsin and is called “Pirate Times.” It was Hoffman’s answer to the theme ”If I could travel in time, I’d visit…”. This year’s theme is ”My best day ever,” which Google hopes “will inspire kids to explore ideas that are imaginary, exploratory or even sentimental, past, present or future.”

In addition to being featured on Google’s homepage, the Doodle 4 Google winner will be awarded a $30,000 scholarship to be used at the college of their choice, and their school will receive a $50,000 technology grant. Get out those colored pencils, kids!

If drawing isn’t your child’s strong suit, there’s also the Google Science Fair launching on January 31. “Past winners have done truly amazing work, from a breast cancer detection tool (created by a 17-year old!) and a way for the hearing-impaired to hear music through vibrations,” according to an email from Google.
