You can view some of the 2009 USA student doodles.
You can vote May 11-18, 2009.
There were a total of about 28000 entries.
You can vote among 39 from ten regions and four grade ranges.
The state finalists include about 400 entries on another page.
The winning entry is scheduled to be used on the Google search page on May 21, 2009.

Many of them seem very good.

The submissions include the age, name, city and school of the entrant.
Accompanying the doodle is a title and explanation.

Some of the entries for the young ages seem very advanced.
Not only is the art in the doodles advanced, but the vocabulary and social themes seem advanced for the youngest ages.

Google is providing prize money.
I do not know the details of the rules.
How much assistance is permitted?

Here are four samples.
There are many other good entries.

"Time to Go Home" by Demitri Miller (age 18)
At first glance, I thought it was about nudists or skinny dippers.
I then read the explanation.

"One World One God" by Sameek Das (age 8)

"Peace Puzzle Together Forever" by Silvana Alarcon (grade 7-9)

"Hello" by Andrew Rochman (grade 7-9)
