Before there was an airplane, there were doodles of flying machines, and before there was a submarine, there were doodles of underwater sea explorers. Ideas big and small, practical and playful, thought-provoking and smile-inducing, have started out as doodles. And we’re ready for more!

Doodle 4 Google is the chance for young artists to think and dream big. This year’s theme, “If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place ...,” is all about curiosity, possibility, and imagination.

Creating the best doodle comes with major perks: This year the winner of the competition will become an honorary Google Doodler for a day and animate his or her Doodle for the homepage with the Doodle team. The winning Doodle will then be featured on the Google homepage for a day for millions to see. The winner will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school.

Mark your calendar to send in your kids’ submissions by Thursday, March 20. Judging starts with Googlers and a panel of guest judges, including astronaut Ron Garan, author of the Percy Jackson Series Rick Riordan, Google[x] Captain of Moonshoot Astro Teller, directors of “The Lego Movie” Chris and Phil, President of RISD school Rosanne Somerson, robotics designer Lee Magpili, and authors Lemony Snicket and Mary Pope Osborne.

On April 29, the 50 state finalists will be announced, and a public vote will open to select the national winner. These 50 kids will all get to visit Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., on Wednesday, May 21, for a day full of creative workshops and other fun activities -- and the winning (animated!) doodle will be revealed on google.com in June.

Teachers and parents can download entry forms at http://www.google.com/doodle4google. Doodles can be uploaded digitally to our site or mailed in. Entire classrooms are encouraged to participate! There’s no limit to the number of doodles from any one school or family ... Just remember, only one doodle per student.
