This year’s theme invites you to show Google what you hope for in your future. Classrooms on Mars? Shoes that can fly? Food for everyone? A pill that cures everything? Take your ideas and put them into your Doodle!
The annual Doodle for Google contest gives students kindergarten through twelve grade a chance to design a creative logo of their own and the chance to have it featured on
the Google search page for a day. Plus win Google swag, a $30,000 college scholarship, and a $50,000 tech package for your school/non-profit organization.
Students can work with any materials they want, but all doodles must use the theme, represent the Google logo and be submitted by Monday, March 18, 2019, 8:00 pm
