Google Offers Scholarship For Best Kid's Doodle

Google has launched a doodling contest for kids and teens.  The  Doodle 4 Google competition is designed to encourage “aspiring young artists to get creative, and let their imagination and curiosity roam free,” according to the company.  The winner will get a $30,000 college scholarship plus a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school and the winner’s doodle will be displayed on the Google home page for 24 hours. Plus the winner gets a trip to the “Googleplex” (Google HQ) in Silicon Valley to work with Google staff to animate their doodle.

Students, from kindergarten though high school are welcome to enter and teachers can submit multiple entries at once.

Making the world a better place

The theme this year is “If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place,” which fits in nicely with a project I’m helping to run this year called “One Good Thing.” One Good Thing is part of this year’s U.S. Safer Internet Day celebration. Rather than focus on the negative aspects of the Internet, this year’s theme is “Create a Better Internet Together,” so to drive that home, ConnectSafely.org (the non-profit I help run that’s hosting Safer Internet Day in the U.S.) is encouraging people to share “one good thing” they’ve done to improve the Internet or use connected technology to make the world a better place.” You can view what people has submitted here.

This year’s Safer Internet Day will be celebrated in Washington DC with a half-day event featuring that will feature a talk by Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), a panel of youth leaders and a panel of executives from Google/YouTube, Instragram, Twitter and Tumblr.

The event will be webcast live here.

Disclosure: Larry Magid is co-director of ConnectSafely.org, a non-profit Internet safety organization that gets financial support from Google and other companies. ConnectSafely is also the U.S. host for Safer Internet Day

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
