Doodle 4 Google Art Contest

Doodle 4 Google Art Contest

Eva Kung-Bi

Every year Google sponsors a competition for young artists to create a “Google Doodle” based on a specific theme. This year’s theme is “What makes me…me”, and you can use any medium you’d like from Copic® markers to clay. Entries must have the letters G-o-o-g-l-e in them, just like a Google Doodle! Entries are due to Miss. Savage in the arts hallway by November 25th.

Doodles will be judged on Artistic merit (based on artistic skill), Creativity (representation of the contest theme, use of the letters in the Google logo, and the unique approach to the doodle), Theme communication (how well the contest theme is expressed in both the artwork and the written statement).

Compositions will be grouped and judged by grade groups, 6th grade and 7th grade, 8th grade and 9th grade. Judges and Google Doodlers will choose the best doodle from each of the U.S. states and territories to determined the State and Territory winners. These winners will have their doodles included in the Doodle 4 Google gallery, and receive an Android tablet, and a shirt with their doodle printed on it. Five of the State and Territory winners will become National Finalists and receive a $5,000 college scholarship, a trip to Google headquarters in California to meet the Google Doodlers, an Android tablet, and a t-shirt with their doodle printed on it. One National

Finalist will become the National Winner. The National Winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 Google for Education grant for their school, a trip to Google Headquarters and an opportunity to nominate a teacher to come on the trip, a Chromebook, an Android tablet, and a t-shirt with their doodle printed on it.

*Entries that are not original works, and do not contain the Google logo will be disqualified.

**One student is only allowed to enter once.
