    Do you know a student who loves to draw and would want their artwork featured on Google's homepage?

    The eleventh annual "Doodle for Google" contest is back!

    There's a big prize for the winner and the winner's school.

    The national winner's drawing will be displayed on Google.com for a day and they'll receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology package for their school or non-profit organization and a trip to Google's headquarters in California.

    Four national finalists will also each receive a $5,000 scholarship and free trip to Google headquarters.

    The contest is open to students in grades K-12.

    The theme is to “When I grow up I hope”

    According to the contest page, "this year’s theme invites you to show us what you hope for in your future. Classrooms on Mars? Shoes that can fly? Food for everyone? A pill that cures everything? Take your ideas and put them into your Doodle!"

    Students can work with any materials they want.

    The deadline to enter is March 18 at 11 p.m. EST.

    Celebrity judges include Kermit the Frog and Jimmy Fallon.

    For a chance to be a Doodle for Google winner, parents and teachers can head over to doodle4google.com to enter your submission before the contest closes!

    All state and territory winners will get their artwork displayed on the Google gallery and an assembly celebration at their school.
