Cast Your Vote!

Take a look at the 40 regional finalists, selected from 400 state finalists, for this year's U.S. Doodle 4 Google contest. This year, there were a record number of submissions — more than 107,000 from talented student artists from every state across the country. From Stilwell, Oklahoma, to Woodinville, Washington, Googlers are visiting the schools of the regional finalists to celebrate their incredible artwork along with thousands of their teachers, friends and classmates.

The doodle team, volunteer Googlers and guest judges helped determine the 40 regional finalists. Whoopi Goldberg and Jim Davis, Garfield the Cat's creator, among others lent a hand to help decide the top doogles. Now comes one of the most exciting parts of the contest, accordign to Google -- your votes! From now until May 13 at 11:59 p.m. PDT, you can cast your online votes for your favorite doodle (one vote for each of the four grade groups). On May 19, Google will announce the national winner at our awards ceremony in New York City. The national winner will receive a $15,000 college scholarship and $25,000 towards a new computer lab for his or her school, and the winning design will appear on on Friday, May 20. All of the top 40 regional finalists will also have their work publicly displayed at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and at SFMOMA in San Francisco.
