"What I'd like to do someday" is the theme of the fourth annual Doodle 4 Google. This contest for U.S. K-12 students will reward the child who designs the coolest logo based on this theme for Google's home page with a $15,000 scholarship. Also, the child's school will receive a $25,000 grant.

Teachers, parents, or legal guardians must register their student(s) by March 2. Submissions must be postmarked by no later than March 16. Only one Doodle per student will be accepted.

This year's judges will include actress/TV show host Whoopi Goldberg, cartoonist Jim Davis, figure skater Evan Lysacek, and several other cartoonists, animators, and illustrators.

The top 40 finalists will earn a trip to Google's New York office on May 19, and be featured in an exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
