Google launches Doodle competition, celebrates Paul Cezanne's birthday
Google launched its fourth annual “Doodle 4 Google” art competition for K-12 students Wednesday.
Students in the U.S. can submit a drawing of Google’s logo with the theme “What I’d like to do someday.” The top entry will be displayed on Google’s homepage.
A pack of famous judges -- including Whoopi Goldberg, "Garfield" creator Jim Davis, ice skater and Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek and author Beverly Cleary -- will pore over the entries.
The winner will land a $15,000 scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for his or her school. This year, parents can also register their children directly by March 2, with submissions postmarked by March 16.
Last year, third-grader Makenzie Melton of Missouri beat out 33,000 other students to win with a colored pencil Doodle of a rainforest habitat.
Wednesday’s Doodle celebrates French artist Paul Cezanne’s 172nd birthday.
