Doodle 4 Google 2012 Competition

"If I could travel in time, I´d visit..." 
I'm so excited about this super cool program that I'm republishing the details from the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH) and hope the Houston kids in your life will take a shot at making a difference in their education. The cool factor just wins out on this one.

The MFAH is proud to support the 2012 Doodle 4 Google competition. The competition is open to K—12 students of U.S. schools and homeschools to create their own Google doodle.

This year´s theme is "If I could travel in time, I´d visit..." Students take a blank canvas to harness their curiosity and imagine the past, present, and/or future anywhere in the world.

Entry forms may be picked up and dropped off at the Kinder Foundation Education Center in the Law Building through noon on March 16. Entry forms can also be downloaded here, and mailed directly to Google. Must be postmarked March 20 to be considered. For more information on how to enter, click here.
