The fifth edition of the Doodle 4 Google competition has kicked off and all K-12 students in the US are invited to take part in contest, the Mountain View-based search engine giant announced. The winner of the competition will get a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology grant for the school he attends, and the honor of having the winning picture featured on the Google homepage on May 18th for millions of people around the world to see. The winning doodle will also be featured on a special edition of Crayola’s 64-crayon box.

To win the Doodle 4 Google competition, K-12 students must come up with a Google doodle that respects this year’s theme – and this year’s theme is “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…” The students who take part in the competition get to fill in the blanks. They can travel to the past or to the future, or to just a few moments ago. The choice is up to them.

Once the student has a doodle that respects this year’s theme, all you have to do as a parent or as a teacher, is submit it to Google with a signed and completed entry form. The deadline for submitting doodles is March 20th. You will be glad to find out that submitting your child’s or student’s doodle is now easier than ever since Google got rid of the registration step in the process.

All the doodles submitted as part of the Doodle 4 Google competition will be judged by Google employees and a panel of guest judges that includes American singer, songwriter and actress Katy Perry. The panel of judges will help Google pick the winners of the competition – a significant change is that this year there will be 5 finalists and one winner per state, which means there will be 50 State Winners. Their doodles will be exhibited at The New York Public Library's historic Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 42nd Street in an exhibition open to the public over the summer.

The public will get to vote on the doodles submitted by the 50 State Winners starting with May 2nd.

From the aforementioned 50 State Winners, Google will pick 5 National Finalists and 1 National Winner. On May 17th, the National Awards Ceremony will take place in New York City; all 50 State Winners will be flown to NYC to attend it.
