Google announced the launch of "Doodle 4 Google" yesterday. The Competition is aimed at school children where they are asked to design a Google logo inspired by the question, "What If…?"

Working on the theme of getting the children when they are still young, the winner of the doodle would be rewarded quite handsomely by Google. The winning student’s doodle will not only get displayed on Google homepage on May 22, 2008; also the champion "doodler" will win a $10,000 college scholarship, along with a $25,000 technology grant for his/her school.

Google has announced that the competition is open to K-12 students in the U.S. “Doodle 4 Google” has been well appreciated by many. Kevin Jarrett, an elementary teacher from New Jersey said, “Finding engaging projects that are aligned with core curricula and state standards is hard. The Doodle 4 Google contest is a winner because it builds on the intersections of art, science, social studies and language arts, captures the imagination of students, and provides them with an opportunity to share their creativity with the world.”

The participants for the contest will be judged by a panel of independent judges and then the Google employees will select the top doodles across age groups, from which the public will help select the final four. The winner will be selected on artistic merit, creativity, representation of the theme and other grounds.
