2015 Doodle 4 Google Contest Asks Students To Create A “What Makes Me…Me” Google Logo.

Just announced this morning is the 2015 Doodle 4 Google competition, in which kids compete for the opportunity to make Google’s massively trafficked homepage their own personal canvas for a day. In a nod to just how creative young artists can get, Google is announcing a new wrinkle this year: Creators can work in any medium they choose. “Students can cook, build, cut, spin, paint, or mold their doodle — basically use any material they like as long as they incorporate the letters G-O-O-G-L-E,” Sophie Diao writes on the company’s blog. “We love using unexpected materials ourselves to find the best way to showcase a person or celebrate a holiday,” Diao, a Doodle artist herself, tells The Post’s Comic Riffs. “For example, when doodling Ella Fitzgerald, we used paper cut-outs to bring her theatricality to life. This year, it seems that Google wanted to mix things up a bit – it’s the eighth year, so keeping things fresh is a good idea – by allowing entrants to use whatever medium they want to create their Doodles.

One Earth Day, we grew a bed of flowers to spell out the doodle, and to celebrate Laura Ingalls Wilder, our guest artists used needle-felting, scale-model set-building, and photography. Once every year, Google opens the door for the younger generation to display their talents in a place where millions of people will see it: the Google home page. The national winner will receive $30,000 toward a college scholarship and will have the chance to meet with the Google artists in Northern California. The guest judges include animator Glen Keane (“Rapunzel”), astronaut Yvonne Cagle, NBA star Steph Curry and pro soccer player Alex Morgan, Emmy-winning actress Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”) and Emmy-nominated director/writer B.J. Entries can be sent in every form imaginable, ranging from digital art, paintings, to the traditional pen and paper, and everything else under the sun.

Entries will be accepted until December 7th of this year, after which Google will pick a winner from the 50 states, as well as Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
