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.
President Abraham Lincoln was America’s first “technology” president. He used emerging telegraph technology in war, politics, and even his personal life. The Decoding the Civil War project at The Huntington Library is focused on using transcribed and decoded Civil War telegrams to engage new and younger audiences to spark their curiosity and develop new critical thinking skills.
