Have you heard of Doodle for Google?Maybe no, maybe so. Maybe you know someone who won or maybe you are a previous winner!
It's a contest with great prizes!
Doodle for Google is an annual contest, celebrating it's 10th anniversary, for students in grades K-12 to enter a Google doodle for a chance to have it go 'live' on Google as well as win a variety of other great prizes.
There are grade level categories with state/territory winners, national finalists and 1 national 'winner.' All the winning finalists will get some great Googly swag and have their Doodle Entry featured in the gallery. The 5 national finalists (1 from each grade group) also earn a $5000 college scholarship & a trip to Googleplex in Mountain View (I've been there and it is AMAZING!). The national grande prize winner will be awarded a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology award to his/her school of choice (incentive for you to encourage your budding artists ;)

This year's theme 'What Inspires' Me will be judged based on artistic skill, creativity and theme communication.
