Google Doodle Competition 2014

You know those cool doodles on the Google search page?  There is creative genius behind each one.  Each year Google puts forth it's Google Doodle competition to students in grades K-12.  There will be lots of judging and several prizes, but one lucky winner will see their Doodle featured on the front page of Google along with a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school!  Judges for this year's competition include Mary Pope Osbourne, Rick Riordan, Limony Snicket and many more!  Click here to see the full list of judges.

To find out more about how you can create a doodle and get in on the fun click here.  Closing date for all entries is Thursday, March 20th! For teachers wishing to partake in the fun with your entire class, take a peak at the teacher resource page.

I will be hosting a Google Hangout session in the library on Wednesday, February 26th @ 1:00 for students interested in participating in the competition.  Students will get to meet Google Doodlers and learn how they go from ideas to doodles. Doodlers will share the creative process for one of their doodles: brainstorms, first drafts and exploratory sketches, the review process and finally how it all comes together in the final doodle. They'll then take questions from the classrooms and other viewers on the Hangout On-Air.
