Supporter of Oregon Education,

Today we are emailing you about an excellent opportunity for students across Oregon- Doodle 4 Google, an annual art and design competition. Now in it's sixth year, the Doodle 4 Google Program is a competition open to K-12 students in U.S. schools. Students are asked to create their own Google Doodle around this year's theme "My Best Day Ever..." The winning artist's Doodle will be displayed on the Google homepage for millions to see, and the winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school. More information and entry forms are available online at: http://www.google.com/doodle4google/

Google judges the entries based on the grade level of the students who submit them. Google will pick one winner from each grade category per state and then one overall winner for each state from those semi-finalists. On May 1, Google will announce 50 state winners who will be eligible for the grand prize. Google will host a fun event at the winning student's school right here in Oregon.  The grand prize winner will be announced on May 22nd at the Final Awards Ceremony in New York City.

This is a great program that children, teachers and community leaders love but Google needs your help to take it to the next level.
Submissions are due on March 22nd. Google is launching a "race to the finish" competition between all 50 states. The interactive map tracker on www.google.com/doodle4google<http://www.google.com/doodle4google> will show the leadings states with the most submissions relative to student population size. Google will be alerting local media and others to which states are generating the most submissions.  There will be a special prize for the winning state.
