Your kid could be famous! Doodle 4 Google for School Children

The 2011 Doodle 4 Google contest is now open for K-12 students in the U.S. to redesign Google’s logo around the theme “What I’d like to do someday...”. The winning student, chosen by Google employees and a panel of guest judges, will have their design displayed on for millions to see, and take home a $15,000 scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for his or her school or after-school program. We’ll also choose 40 regional finalists, whose artwork will be featured in a special exhibition in partnership with the Whitney Museum of American Art. This year, the contest is open to parents to register their school-age children directly, and we’re working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Girls Scouts of the USA so kids in those organizations can participate too. Educators at public, private and home schools can also register their students.
