Google Announces State Winners for Doodle for Google Contest

Google on Thursday announced the state and territory winners of its annual Doodle for Google contest, which invites schoolchildren from kindergarten through 12th grade to design their own variation of the company’s famous logo.

This year’s theme – “I take care of myself through…” – asked students to share how they take care of their mind, body and spirit as they face the opportunities and challenges that each new day brings brings. Students can use any material or medium and are asked to write about how they created the doodle and how it represents their inner strength.

Google said it was amazed at the responses it had received about how students cultivate self-care practices.

“Young artists shared a number of helpful strategies, including spending time in nature, being active, participating in creative hobbies and spending time with loved ones,” said Selly Sallah, product marketing manager for Google Doodles, in a statement.

“Given the challenging nature of the last few years, we’ve been really inspired to see how many students have boosted their spirits and built their resilience,” she said.

The winning entry of the competition will be featured on the Google homepage for one day, one of many Google doodles which the company regularly uses to liven up the bare corporate logo that usually occupies its search engine page. In addition to notoriety, the winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology award for their school.

Google invites the public to view the full gallery of artworks from the 54 winners and cast your vote for the favorite by July 12th. The result of this poll determines the five national finalists and finally the national winner.
