Calling all artists: Google invites children in grades K–12 to submit their own original sketches for the annual Doodle 4 Google competition by Friday, March 22. This year, the theme of "My Best Day Ever" encourages tykes to let their imaginations run wild as they portray their dreams while incorporating the Google logo (last year's winner drew a pirate scene around those six iconic letters). One lucky kid will nab a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school and, of course, the chance to see his or her masterpiece appear on the Google homepage. Plus, the 50 state winners will get to see their doodles on display at AMNH from May 22 through June 14. Looking for inspiration? Watch Google's video below (we love seeing the kids brainstorming their ideas!), then pick up a paintbrush over the long weekend.
