linepurplefadegoogle-if-i-could-do-anything-logoCalling All Aspiring Graphic Artists and Illustrators
There are always graphic design contests and competitions for adults, but this one, to borrow a phrase, is just for kids.

The Doodle 4 Google contest is open to students from the grades of kindergarten to 12th.  In order to enter you must do so through an officially registered school. Click here for details and the registration form. The aim of the competition is to select a winning Google homepage logo that reflects the theme of "If I Could Do Anything I Would..."

So what would you do...

Find a cure for cancer?
Become an astronaut?
Invent a supercomputer?

The ideas for your entry are endless.

Submissions should be drawn on 8.5"x11" paper and tell a visual story of the vision they have of what they would do if anything were possible. The PDF contest template can be found by clicking here.
