Google Invites Kids to Dream Big

Doodle 4 GoogleGoogle just announced the 2013 Doodle 4 Google contest theme as “My Best Day Ever…” They want to give students a blank canvas to exercise their creative imagination and doodle about their best day ever — be that in the past, present or future. They are excited to see moments or thoughts that range from very small and personal to broad and far reaching — maybe even out of this universe.

The stakes are high: in addition to seeing their doodle displayed on our homepage in May, the winner will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school. Last year, Google received a record 114,000 submissions. We can’t wait to see all of this year’s doodles!

Students can submit doodles until March 22, and Google will announce a winner from every single state on May 1. Last year’s winner from Connecticut was Cory Hassman of Durham.
