Google Doodle Team Video Promotes Student Contest

Who doesn’t love a good Google Doodle? Any day that one of those creative illustrations shows up during a Google search, they generate inquiries (What is that? Who’s it for?) and even media coverage. A Doodle in June honoring Les Paul had some calling it the best one yet and was trending on Twitter.

To promote its student contest, Doodle for Google, the artists behind Google Doodle have made a video offering insight, tips for artists, and a look back at last year’s winner. The contest is open to kids in grades K-12 and the national winner gets a $30,000 scholarship with a $50,000 to the winning school. Submissions are being accepted through March 23.
