Google’s 5th “Doodle 4 Google” Contest Opens For K-12 Students

doodle-4-google-logoGoogle has launched its fifth annual “Doodle 4 Google” contest, and this year’s version appears to be bigger than ever and easier to enter.

This year’s contest theme is “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…”. Students in grades K-12 have until March 20th to enter, and it’s even easier this time around — no registration is required. All of the entry details can be found at

Other changes this year include the naming of five finalists and one winner from all 50 states. Celebrity judges this year include Katy Perry, Jordin Sparks and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh – creator of the kids’ show Phineas and Ferb. From those 50 state winners, public voting will choose five national finalists and one ultimate winner.

The winning Google logo will appear on a box of Crayola crayons and on the Google home page on May 18th.
