Dear Educators,

We’re excited to announce that the 8th annual Doodle 4 Google contest is now open! This year, Doodle 4 Google is celebrating self-expression through the age-old medium of the self-portrait. Van Gogh, Monet, Frida Kahlo, and other notable artists have expressed themselves through self-portraits, and now we’re inviting young artists to do the same.

The 2015 theme, “What Makes Me...Me,” puts a modern twist on the self-portrait, challenging students to submit a doodle that shows the world what makes them unique and what they’re passionate about. There’s no limit to kids’ individuality, so whether it’s ink or clay, for the first year there’s no limit to the materials students can use to create their doodles.

One student’s artwork will be displayed on the Google homepage for millions to see. The winning student will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for their school. The winning student may also nominate one teacher who has inspired them to head to Google Headquarters. 

Submissions can be sent in from October 19, 2015 to December 7, 2015. To get started, check out 2015's classroom kits that has engaging lesson plans to inspire creativity. 

Thank you,
The Doodle 4 Google Team

Hello, as a former ELA teacher, I love this collection of free resources and wanted to share them with the Art teachers in case you hadn't seen them already. Do you have digital resources you depend on? Or are you looking for new material?
