Students have the chance to create the logo seen on the Google homepage, according to a news release.

The company will hold a contest for Google doodles, the fun versions of the Google logo that you see on the Google homepage throughout the year in celebration of special events and people. Once a year, Google gives Kindergarten through 12th-grade students across the U.S. the chance to display their own Google doodle on www.google.com through the Doodle 4 Google contest. The 2013 theme is "My Best Day Ever..."

Students get a blank canvas to exercise their creative imagination and doodle about their best day ever — be that in the past, present or future.

This year, doodles can be submitted via mail Doodle 4 Google, PO Box 9112, Plainview, NY 11803-9112 or by uploading the doodle to the contest website. For overnight deliveries send to Doodle 4 Google, 35 Pinelawn Road, Suite 207W, Melville, NY 11747.

The stakes are high: in addition to seeing their doodle displayed on our homepage in May, the winner will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school.

Students can submit doodles until March 22. Winners are announced May 1.
