Self-milking cows? Recreational space travel? Google is asking kids to imagine what the future holds in its annual Doodle 4 Google competition. Students from kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to submit a doodle — made with crayons, clay, graphic design or even food — incorporating the letters G-O-O-G-L-E, inspired by the open-ended prompt "What I see for the future..." A winner from each state will have their doodle shown in a photo gallery on the Doodle 4 Google website and receive an Android tablet. One lucky overall winner, who will be selected from five national finalists chosen by the public, will score a $30,000 college scholarship and $50,000 for their school to spend on technology. The cherry on top: His or her doodle will be displayed on the Google homepage for a day.
