Google Scholarship Contest

Google has a great opportunity for Illinois students. If you’d like to spread the word to your constituents, please see below for templates you can use on social media.
Google is currently accepting submissions for its annual Doodle 4 Google competition. Art-loving K-12 students from across the U.S., Guam and Puerto Rico are invited to bring their imagination to life in a doodle of the Google logo, using any medium they choose. The winning masterpiece will be displayed on the Google homepage for a day, where millions will enjoy it.
Google is asking kids to imagine what awaits them in the years to come and represent that vision of this year’s theme: “What I see for the future…” That can mean anything they see — even if it includes flying dogs, living on a shooting star, the trip of their dreams, or a distant world filled with dazzling new technology of all shapes and sizes.
In addition to the homepage showcase, the winner will receive $30,000 towards a college scholarship, and the opportunity to work with the Doodle team at the Googleplex in Mountain View. As an added bonus: Their home school will get to spend $50,000 on technology to help foster the next generation of professionals—possibly even future Googlers.
Students can submit their artwork now through December 2, 2016.
