Google kicks off doodle contest for kids

WASHINGTON — Google wants to know how kids see the future.

The tech giant kicked off its annual Doodle 4 Google contest Wednesday.

“We’re asking kids to imagine what awaits them in the years to come and represent that vision of this year’s theme: “What I see for the future …,” Google’s official blog said.

Kids have to incorporate the letters G-O-O-G-L-E into the doodle.

The winner will get $30,000 for a college scholarship and the opportunity to work with the Doodle team at the Googleplex in Mountain View.

The winner’s school will get $50,000 for technology.

Submissions are open until Dec. 2, 2016. The judges will then narrow the list to 53, and the public gets to pick the winner.

Last year, Akilah Johnson, 15, a 10th-grader at Eastern Senior High School in D.C., won.
