Google. It is a noun, a verb, and now, a competition.
The popular search engine is asking schoolchildren to design a Google logo for its homepage that is inspired by the question “What if…?”
Already, students from five Oklahoma campuses have submitted entries, Google spokesman Eitan Bencuya said.
The five schools are Southern Hills Elementary, Wilson Elementary, Christ the King Catholic School and Francis Tuttle Technology Center — Reno Campus in Oklahoma City; and Victory Life Academy in Durant.
The winning design of the “Doodle 4 Google” competition will be displayed at www.google.com on May 22, and the student who sketches it will win a $10,000 college scholarship plus a $25,000 technology grant for his or her school.
Schools must be registered by March 28 and entries must be postmarked by April 12. To participate and for more information, visit www.google.com/doodle4google.
