Kermit the Frog and Jimmy Fallon Judge 2019 Doodle 4 Google Contest

Do you have a mini creative who loves to whip out the pad of paper and colored pencils to create their own pieces of art? This month on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Google announced its 2019 Doodle 4 Google contest where students have the chance to win a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for his or her school as well as having their artwork featured on Google. 

To make this year’s contest even more special, Google has brought in two heavy-hitters, Jimmy Fallon and Kermit the Frog, who will go through all the submissions with 2018 National Teacher of the Year, Mandy Manning.

This year’s contest theme is “When I Grow Up, I Hope…” which invites K-12 students to use their wildest (or practical) imagination and enter their artwork -- submissions are open until 3/18.

Doodles will be judged on the following parameters:
  1. Artistic merit:
    Based on artistic skill
  2. Creativity:
    Representation of the contest theme, use of the letters in the Google logo, and the unique approach to the doodle
  3. Theme communication:
    How well the contest theme is expressed in both the artwork and the written statement
Doodles will be grouped and judged by the following 5 grade groups:
  • Grades K-3
  • Grades 4-5
  • Grades 6-7
  • Grades 8-9
  • Grades 10-12

In addition to this year’s contest, last year’s winning Doodle design by 1st grader Sarah Gomez-Laneby is now featured on the Google homepage.
