The California-based Internet titan announced its sixth annual "Doodle 4 Google" contest in which students from kindergarten to 12th grade vie to create a winning "doodle," a creative design playing off the search page logo, reports

The doodle contest theme is "My best day ever".

Google said they have a broad theme each year to provide inspiration while letting young artists' imagination roam free. They hope to give kids a chance to explore themes that could be imaginary, exploratory or even sentimental, past, present or future, it added.

The winning artwork will be displayed for the Internet world to see at and its creator will get 30,000 dollars in scholarship money to help pay for college. Their school will get a 50,000-dollar technology grant.

Doodles can be submitted between Tuesday and March 22, with judges selecting a top contender from each US state and the public voting online at to help determine national finalists.

The winning doodle will be appear on the Google search page a day after an awards ceremony in New York City on May 22 and an exhibit of top entries will go on temporary display at the American Museum of Natural History there.

More than 114,000 doodles were submitted in last year's contest, which was won by a seven-year-old boy's pirate-themed artwork.
