What I love about Doodle for Google

First, kids do not have to be artists to enter. Kids just need to enter. Google artists will work with winners to create the doodle which will appear on Google.

Secondly, doodles are grouped and judged according to age group.
• Grades K-3
• Grades 4-5
• Grades 6-7
• Grades 8-9
• Grades 10-12

There will be one national finalist from each grade group. And then the winner will be chosen from those 5 doodles.

Visit the Doodle for Google site to view past year’s winning doodles.
Remember, the deadline to apply is March March 4, 2022 11:59 p.m. PST
