The 2015 Theme
For this year’s contest, students created doodles that told the world “What makes me…me.” Kids have all kinds of things that make them unique, so they could use all kinds of materials to create their doodles, from crayons, to clay, to yarn, to graphic design, even food and video games. As with every Doodle 4 Google contest, the winner’s artwork will be featured on the Google homepage for a day.
Doodles will be judged on the following criteria:
- Artistic merit: based on artistic skill
- Creativity: representation of the contest theme, use of the letters in the Google logo, and the unique approach to the doodle
- 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 grade groups:
- Grades K-3
- Grades 4-5
- Grades 6-7
- Grades 8-9
- Grades 10-12
Finalists will be judged on a state-by-state basis as described below.
- State and Territory Winners: 10 or more winners for each grade group, 53 in total
- National Finalists: 1 finalist for each grade group, 5 in total
- National Winner: featured on the Google homepage
