If students will inevitably doodle in class, why not incorporate this past time into the curriculum? With the DoodleforGoogle contest, Google rewards students for their creativity. The theme “What if…” allows K-12 students to redesign the Google logo and write a short description of their work. The doodle site,www.google.com/doodle4google, offers techniques for teachers to incorporate the contest into their lesson plans and more information about the contest. Entire classrooms are encouraged to participate, but each school can submit only six entries.

Winners will be awarded at the state, regional, and national levels, and will have their designs displayed as the Google home page logo on May 22, 2008. All winners will receive prizes. The national winner will receive a $10,000 college scholarship; a trip to the Googleplex, Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California; a laptop computer; and a T-shirt with their winning design. Additionally, the winner’s school will receive a $25,000 grant to establish or improve a computer lab. Registration ends March 28. Entries are due by April 12.
