How do you brighten up a mundane Internet search? It happens every time the folks at Google decide to change up the graphics on the search engine's homepage—creating all sorts of fun things with its name.
But once a year, Google gives students in kindergarten through 12th grade a swing at creating something that will be seen by millions. And while the exposure is awesome (the winner is displayed on the U.S. homepage for one day in May), and the college scholarship even better ($50,000, thank you very much), you're going to have to be quick on your toes if you want to compete. The deadline for getting your entries in for this year's competition is Friday, March 23.
The theme is, "If I could travel in time, I'd visit ..."
Maybe the answer to that is back a few weeks so your kids would have more time to come up with an incredible entry. Get all the details on the contest here.
