PHOENIX — Google is inviting Arizona K-12 students to submit their best representations of the theme, “what makes me…me,” for this year’s Doodle 4 Google contest.
In previous years, students were asked to send their best doodles, but this year Google isn’t limiting what kids can use to show what makes them unique.
Students can draw, paint, sculpt, cook, sew — as long as the artwork contains the letters G-o-o-g-l-e.
Doodles will be judged on artistic merit, creativity and how well the theme is expressed.
Ten or more students will be named winners for individual grade groups, with one Arizona student becoming the state’s national entrant, according to the judging criteria.
This year’s judges include actress Julie Bowen, Disney animator Glen Keane and NBA star Stephen Curry.
Prizes include college scholarships, tablets and shirts featuring students’ doodles.
Tracy Zhang, a Scottsdale high school student, was last year’s state winner, advancing to the national level. Her doodle “Natural Light-Powered Flying Car,” was a response to the theme, “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place.” The contest received over 100,000 drawings.
The competition is open to entries until Dec. 7.
