Google today launched its fourth annual "Doodle 4 Google" contest.

Open to K-12 students in the U.S., Doodle 4 Google is an opportunity of a lifetime: design the Google.com homepage doodle for millions to see, and while you're at it, take home a $15,000 scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for your school.

While most of this year's contest remains the same, some changes made includes: "Now, parents or guardians can register their students directly, and if a school registers, there's no limit on the number of doodles they can submit. But remember, we only allow one entry per student. We're also pleased to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Girl Scouts of the USA, two organizations that truly bring this year's theme to life.

Once you've registered your students by March 2, 2011 and they submit their artwork, Google employees and panel of guest judges, including Whoopi Goldberg, gold medal ice skater Evan Lysacek and "Garfield" creator Jim Davis, will narrow down the submissions. The top 40 regional finalists willn't only receive a trip to New York City and a visit from Google in their hometown, but their artwork will be featured in a special exhibition in partnership with the Whitney Museum of American Art," stated Google.
