Google said today it is holding its third annual Doodle 4 Google contest that allows K-12 students in the U.S. to create their own logo for the Google homepage.

The theme this year is "If I Could Do Anything, I Would." Google says along with the winners Doodle appearing on the homepage on May 27, 2010, they will also receive a $15,000 college scholarship, a laptop computer and a $25,000 technology grant for their school.

Google has also put together a panel of expert judges. The Google Blog offers more details. "We’re happy to let you know that this year, we’ve also assembled a panel of well-known ‘Expert Jurors,’ including creative directors, cartoonists and famous animators ranging from Sesame Workshop to Pixar Animation Studios. Our Expert Jurors will help us narrow down the cream of the crop to 40 regional finalists, who will come to the Google office in New York City on May 26, 2010."

"For the second year, we’ll also be partnering with the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, where the top 40 regional finalists will get to have their artwork displayed in a national exhibit. And for the first time this year, we’ll give out eight Technology Booster awards to schools that submit maximum number of doodles per school by March 10th and have students in our 400 State Finalists."

Only schoolteachers or administrators can register their schools to participate.  Registration for the Doodle 4 Google contest closes at 11:59 Pacific Time on March 17, 2010, and entries must be submitted by March 31, 2010.

    Man I wish I was back in HS again, just so I could submit my logo design for Google. Actually this is great for the kiddos and young adults. The chance to have what Google offer’s in return is priceless.

    WTG Google and Good Luck to all entries!

    Dear Google Doodle,
    Why is there no celebration for cinco de mayo? You do all those pictures for all those different countries and never do anything for Cinco DE Mayo. Why is this? Next year do something for this tradition and make it really cool. We are all counting on something awesome. You should do something that has to do with skeletons. Thanks for your time to read this.

    Sincerely,
    Wyatt

    Dear Google Doodle,

    A lot of people around the world celebrate 5 De Mayo. We were wondering why there isn’t anything for that month. We would really appreciate if you guys would create a doodle for next year. So were really looking froward to seeing the doodle for next year

    Sincerely
