Goolge invites students across the U.S. to redesign their homepage logo using their imagination around the theme, "If I could travel in time, I'd visit..." for a chance to win scholarships and cool prizes, including having the winning artwork appear on a limited edition of Crayola's 64 box of crayons.

Open to U.S. students K-12 (including homeschoolers), Doodle 4 Google 2012 encourages kids to use their creative imagination to design Google's logo. Now in its fifth year, the contest saw more than 107,000 submissions from students across the nation last year; then second-grader Matteo Lopez of South San Francisco, California went home the 2011 National Winner.

This year, four national finalists will win a $5,000 educational grant; one national winner will win a $30,000 college scholarship and $50,000 toward their current school to establish a computer lab or technology programming. Addtionally, the artwork of 50 state winners will be on display at a special exhibit at the New York Public Library.

Submissions will be accepted through March 23, 2012. The winning doodle will appear on the homepage for 24 hours beginning May 18, 2012.

Watch last year's announcement event for Doodle 4 Google 2011. The theme was "What I'd like to do someday..."
