The YAM proudly announces its support of Doodle 4 Google 2012 by encouraging all students in the Montana community to participate.

You're probably familiar with the Google doodle, the fun versions of the Google logo that are displayed on the Google homepage throughout the year in celebration of holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of notable artists and scientists. This year, the Yellowstone Art Museum supports the Doodle 4 Google contest and invites all students across Montana, K-12, to submit their own Google doodle -- the best of which will be displayed on www.google.com.

Doodle 4 Google 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..."Doodle 4 Google 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 23rd, 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. Then on May 2nd, Google will give the final vote to you, and one winner from each grade group will be chosen by a public vote. First prize will be awarded to the winning doodler on May 17th, and their doodle will be showcased on google.com on May 18th.

Beginning May 22nd, the YAM will exhibit Montana's ten top-ranked entries in the museum's main hall for public view. An organized "Doodle Day" will take place March 10, 2012, in the Education Studio and is open to all students (K-12) who would like to create a unique design for the Doodle 4 Google contest. Admission is free for students and all art supplies will be provided.
