ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota students have less than a month to enter the Doodle 4 Google contest.
March 20 is the last day submissions will be accepted.
The theme for this year's doodle is "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place ..."
The contest is aimed at inspiring young artists and giving them a chance to see their work come to life.
Students K-12 can enter their doodles for a chance to be featured on Google's homepage in June. The winner also receives a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school.
One doodle from each state will be selected for the nationwide public vote to choose the winner. Last year's Minnesota winner was Carlson Nelson from Maranatha Christian Academy in Brooklyn Park.
