The Doodle for Google art contest is back for the 13th year in a row! This year’s theme is “I am strong because…”
Just like all previous editions of the contest, Doodle for Google 2021 asks K-12 students to create original artwork that addresses this year’s theme. Students then have their artwork submitted on their behalf by their parents or teachers. The contest awards the winner a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant to the winner’s school. The deadline for entry is February 26, 2021.
A small change from previous years is that this year’s Doodle for Google contest includes a required “artist’s statement” about their work.
Teachers who are interested in having students create artwork for this contest as part of a classroom activity should head to the Educators’ Resources page on the contest website. On that page you’ll find an educators’ guide (PDF) that includes lesson plans for incorporating the contest into your classroom.
