Doodle 4 Google contest launches for K-12 students
on Thursday,January 20,2011 20:01
For kids, a simple contest might be all they need to become inspired to enter a career in design. Google has been providing this opportunity annually to K-12 students with their Doodle 4 Google contest, which recently launched to generate interest from the upcoming generation.
Until March 2, children will have the opportunity to submit their designs to the search engine company under the theme, "What I'd Like to Do Someday." Many notable celebrities will take part in the judging, including Whoopi Goldberg and "Garfield" creator, Jim Davis. The winner is eligible to receive a $15,000 scholarship and $25,000 technology grant.
"We know this crop of students will be the generation of tomorrow's leaders and inventors, and we can't wait to see what they come up with," Marissa Mayer, Google vice president of consumer products, wrote in a blog post, according to TMC Net.
Rules have been slightly changed this year to make the registration process simpler for children interested in entering the contest. Parents can now register students and there is no limit on how many pictures can be submitted.
Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
