The Honolulu Museum of Art supports Doodle 4 Google™ 2012 by encouraging Hawai‘i students to participate and by exhibiting the State Finalists’ doodles in an exhibition this summer.
Now in its fifth year, Google 4 Doodle is a competition open to U.S.-based students in grades K through 12 (ages 5 to 18). Each contestant creates and submits their own Google doodle inspired by this year’s theme: “If I could travel in time, I’d visit…” To make a submission, participants must download a form and send it in with the doodle via snail mail—a move that makes entering the contest possible for all children, not just those with access to digital technology.
The first place winner will have his or her artwork displayed on Google’s home page, and will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school. The full rules and submission guidelines can be found at google.com/doodle4google.
Beginning in February, the museum will include Doodle 4 Google activities in its education-related events such as Bank of Hawai‘i Family Sunday, Expression Session, and ArtClub. In addition, the museum’s strong education program—which includes outreach programs such as Art to Go and the Ambassador Program, daily school tours and the state’s largest private art school—make it an ideal partner to get the Doodle 4 Google word out.
