The Museum was approached by Google about an exciting opportunity to support the Doodle 4 Google program. Doodle 4 Google (or D4G) is one of several efforts by Google to encourage and celebrate the creativity of young people by asking students to create their own Google doodle. The theme this year is “If I could travel in time, I’d visit...” D4G gives students a blank canvas to harness their curiosity and imagine the past, present, and/or future anywhere in the world.
After all doodles have been submitted to Google by March 23, a team of Googlers and then guest judges—such as Katy Perry, Phineas and Ferb creator and executive producer Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, and recording artist Jordin Sparks—will help choose the top doodles.
During the week of Spring Break, students participated in a Doodling Event at the Museum. The doodles created at the BMA were submitted to Google for the national competition. As part of the judging, Google selects the top ten doodles for each state. We will display the top ten doodles submitted by Alabama students during the summer of 2012.
