The contest had a record 107,000 submissions from children across the country, all vying to have their drawing displayed on the search engine’s Web site, a grand prize that comes with $15,000 for a college scholarship and $25,000 for a computer lab at the winner’s school.
This year, Google’s panel of guest judges included Whoopi Goldberg, Evan Lysacek, Michael Phelps and Jim Davis. The top finalists will have their work displayed at the San Francisco MOMA and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
Voting for the fourth-annual contest closes on May 13 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time and the winner will be announced on May 19. The winning doodle will appear on the site on May 20.
