Like to Doodle?

Doodle4Google

Do you love to draw? Sketch? Like to just fiddle around with lines and shapes in the margins of your notebook? If so, Doodle4Google is the challenge for you! Every year, Google opens up this competition to students, and one winner will see his or her artwork on Google’s homepage. Do you know how many people visit Google every day? It’s a lot. Google it! Oh, and the winner also gets college scholarship money and a technology grant for his or her school.

To help you prepare, we’re heading to Google headquarters, again, to live stream a meeting with the Google Doodlers — this is the team of creative people who make the Google Doodles on special occasions and holidays! It’s our annual Doodle4Google Livestream Event and it’s happening on Wednesday March 5th, at 1:00pm EST. Make sure to ask your teacher if you can watch it at school.

You can click on the picture or the link above to register for our Virtual Field Trip and get more information, including key competition dates and classroom activity packs.

Ready… start your pencils, crayons, paintbrushes, apps, charcoal, etc.!

    I don;t want you to step out of your comfort zone, but do you know how much the scholarship money is?

        We believe in you, Latravia! The whole Discovery Education Student Network does. Go for it. Even if you don’t win… it’ll be fun to spend some time drawing.

      Hi Hannah. March 5th is the date of our Virtual Field Trip, during which we’ll be broadcasting live from Google headquarters. The competition deadline is March 20th. We figure that will give you plenty of time to work on your submission after being inspired by the actual Doodlers during the Virtual Field Trip!

    Oh my gosh!!! I’m in F.O.C.U.S (stands for fostering, originality, creativity, unique idea, self-direction, basically gifted) and we’re doing this!!! I almost won last year. Do you like to doodle, Jeanette? I do!

      Hi Jeanette! I do like to doodle, but I don’t think I have much artistic talent. Still, if I were a student, I’d probably enter. I won a competition when I was a kid for a poster advertising an orange — some kind of citrus organization or something… had forgotten about that until right now, actually. Good luck!

        I live in Alabama and when I was in 1st grade I won a art contest that they held that year. I drew a cat. You had what looked like a 6th grader and a 4th or 5th grader too. Out of those two kids that were older than me, I won 1st. But I honestly think NOW it looks kind of, kitty!!!

    How DO you enter a drawing? And would this be something you would need to tell your parents about?

    • Jeanette February 25, 2014, 9:52 pm

      Hi A. You can enter online or via regular mail and, yes, this would be something you would need to tell your parents/guardians about — he/she/they need to sign off on your submission.

      Hi Julia. Yes! There is a particular theme associated with this year’s event. I’m going to post it today but, since you asked, it’s “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place…” Have fun brainstorming! Good luck!
