The Google Doodles are now very much a part of the company’s brand image. The annual U.S. Doodle for Google competition has a fun quotient of its own. The 2013 edition should not be anything different. As it is every year, Google has announced the beginning of the 6th annual U.S. Doodle for Google competition, and is inviting K-12 students around the country to create and submit their own “doodle”.

Google is asking the young ‘doodlers’ – what would the perfect day look like? That’s where this year’s wining doodle hopes to find its inspiration. So, if you or your child has an inspiring idea for “My Best Day Ever…” it’s time to bring out the crayons. Check out the video below for some more inspiration.

There is a lot at stake here. Anyone would be happy to have their winning doodle featured on the Google homepage. But the winner also gets to take home a $30,000 college scholarship, and win a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school. Participants can download the entry forms from the Doodle 4 Google site and send in completed doodles by mail or online. The last date is March 22. The national award will be announced on May 22, and the winning doodle will feature on the Google homepage the following day. Winner from respective U.S. states will have their art work displayed at the American Museum of Natural History from May 22 to July 14.

Go to, for full contest rules and entry forms. As Google says – Happy doodling!

    Why doesn't Google ever open up a Doodles contest to adults? I could use a few more zeroes in my bank account -- preferably with commas in between them rather than just, you know, zeroes.

      Adults have lots of arts competitions to pick from. Why compete with children here :) But it serves a purpose too I guess: there's nothing like catching them young for increasing your brand penetration and awareness.
