Google Doodle Contest 2013


Last year’s winner

The Google Doodle Contest is  in it’s 4th year, and this year looks like a great theme, “My best day ever…”  I printed out some blank forms for the Stay & Play group to have fun with.  The prize for the school is geared toward public-schooled kids, but I didn’t think they should be left out of the fun.  Plus, I wonder if they would make an exception for homeschoolers for the technology prize?

From the Google website:

Doodle 4 Google is an annual program that invites K-12 students in the United States to use their artistic talents to think big and redesign our homepage logo for millions to see.

This year, we ask students to exercise their creative imaginations around the theme, “My Best Day Ever…” One talented student artist will see their artwork appear on the Google homepage, receive a $30,000 college scholarship, and a $50,000 technology grant for their school along with some other cool prizes!

Anyway, the kids had fun, and that is the point after all.

If you want to have your kiddo enter the contest, just click on the link above to print out the entry form.  These are the designs we came up with.   The contest doesn’t end until March 22nd, so you have plenty of time, it’s free to enter, and why not.

And we played with sheets.
