Google announces 2013 Doodle 4 Google contest Oregon students are encouraged to enter

PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout the year, Google releases Google doodles, the fun versions of the Google logo seen on Google's homepage in celebration of special events and people. Once a year, Google gives K-12 students across the U.S. the chance to display their own Google doodle on www.google.com through the Doodle 4 Google contest.  

The 2013 Doodle 4 Google contest launches with the theme "My Best Day Ever..." This contest gives students a blank canvas to exercise their creative imagination and doodle about their best day ever -- be that in the past, present or future. Google is excited to see moments or thoughts that range from small and personal to broad and far reaching -- maybe even out of this universe.

The stakes are high: in addition to seeing their doodle displayed on Google's homepage in May, the winner also receives a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school. Last year, Google received a record 114,000 submissions.

Students can submit doodles until March 22, 2013 and Google will announce a winner from every state on May 1st. Last year's Oregon winner was Jordan Alexander from Coburn.
