by Reads (4,244)

Many students across the U.S. use Tablet PCs for school work. Now you have a chance to put your tablet to use and create a new homepage logo for Google. That’s right, Google is having a contest for students in grades K-12. It’s time to use your creativity and design Google’s new logo in the Doodle 4 Google contest. This year’s theme is centered around "What if… ?"

Design Guidelines

  • The doodle should be presented on a white, landscape sheet of 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
  • You can download the Google logo template from our Lesson Resources page.
  • The winning doodle will be displayed on our U.S. homepage, so the Google logo should be clearly visible and recognizable.
  • The doodle can be in pencil, crayons, felt tip or paint, or can be done using computer drawing or design software.
  • Unfortunately, we can’t accept entries which use additional materials to create 3D effects.
  • Please encourage your students to create original designs.  Be inspired by Dennis, but don’t recreate his designs.

The National Winner will also win a $10,000 college scholarship to be used at the school of their choice, a trip to the Googleplex, a laptop computer and a t-shirt with their doodle. The winner’s school will receive a $25,000 grant towards the improvement of a computer lab. Sounds too good to be true, but it is.
