Contest to Design an Uplifting, Interactive Doodle
K–12 students are invited to take part in the 2018 Doodle 4 Google contest and create an uplifting doodle that tells the world “What inspires me.” From crayons to clay, graphics, or even food, young artists can utilize any materials to bring their creations to life. Like all Google Doodles, each submission must incorporate the letters G-o-o-g-l-e. One national winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology package for their school or nonprofit organization, and a behind-the-scenes experience with the Doodle team to transform their Doodle into an interactive experience on Google.com.
I look over at the laughter and my Head of School is using a tiny light and a giant comb on the business director's head, illustrating the proper use of the flashlight their group designed. I couldn't believe how great their design was. In fact, every group had a great design. They all worked, mostly, and the room was alive with creative energy.

A project of Deeper Learning, the Share Your Learning campaign highlights the value of having students present their work to authentic audiences. In sharing their stories of learning, students reflect on their growth and engage in real dialogue with others about their accomplishments and their futures. To get started, teachers can sign up to join a community of educators encouraging students to produce meaningful work for an authentic audience.
