Doodle me this: Portland elementary student could sketch his way to the next Google Doodle and a scholarship — with your help


Doodle me this: Portland elementary student could sketch his way to the next Google Doodle and a scholarship — with your help

The last time I wrote about Google Doodles, it was for ReadWrite. When Google launched the program. There just hasn’t been much cause to cover it from a Portland perspective. Until now. You see, a student from Forest Park Elementary School is in the running to be the next Google Doodle—and a hefty scholarship—thanks to the Doodle 4 Google program.

What’s the Google Doodle, you ask? It’s that wacky form of the Google logo that celebrates something of importance.

Google has made a tradition of tweaking its logotype in honor of holidays, special events, and celebrations. And that tweaking has resulted in a library of interesting interpretations of “Google.” Now, they’re giving school age children the chance to participate in the fun and win some cash with the “Doodle 4 Google” contest.

How can you help Portland kid win? Well, you’ve got to vote.

Young artists coast to coast doodled their inventions to make the world a better place. Doodle 4 Google guest judges have chosen the 50 state winners. Now it’s your turn to vote!

The winner’s doodle will appear on the Google.com homepage and he or she will receive a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school. Help us choose the winner – cast your votes for each grade group now.

Public voting ends on May 9. So get on that. Vote for Matthew Huang Lei, Forest Park Elementary School, in the Doodle 4 Google contest.
