Doodle for Google

May 12, 2021

Vote TODAY for Maine!

Scarborough High School senior, Kelly Dodge, is the State of Maine winner in the Doodle for Google Scholarship competition! Congratulations Kelly! The theme this year was inner strength. She titled her doodle “perseverance of passions”. In Kelly’s description, she wrote, “During the pandemic, finding time and energy to do the things I love has been very challenging. This doodle represents me still having the strength to do what I’m passionate about in these tough times.”

Kelly’s artwork now moves on to the National Competition. She is one of 54 finalists in the entire country and now she is competing against all of the other state winners. The top prize is a $30K scholarship for Kelly AND a gift of $50K worth of technology equipment to the school! They are also awarding $5K scholarships to the next four highest vote-getters.

There is a live online voting period from May 10-15 that will determine the winner. Here’s where we need your help! We need to spread the word on this, not only within our school & district, but also throughout the state of Maine. Please share the link with your friends, family, and professional organizations. Let’s get Kelly some votes!

Your Google canvas

The time has come once again to engage your students in an exciting challenge – create and submit an idea for the Google homepage. The theme this year is What I See for the Future.

What does the future look like? Are cities built in the clouds? Is it a place where everyone gets along – even cats and dogs? Or maybe a world where nobody ever gets sick? With the Google homepage as their canvas, young artists are invited to reach into their imagination and share what they see for the future. The winner’s artwork will be featured on the Google homepage.

Students in grades K-12 are invited to take part in the 2016 Doodle 4 Google contest, and create a doodle that tells the world “What I see for the future.” From crayons to clay, graphic design, or even food, young artists can utilize any materials to bring their creation to life. Like all Google Doodles, each doodle must incorporate the letters G-o-o-g-l-e. One national winner will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship. The contest DEADLINE is December 2, 2016.
