As web searchers know, the familiar primary-colored Google logo is sometimes replaced by different, often whimsical, designs. Called Google doodles, the illustrations celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous scientists, pioneers, and artists. These illustrations are usually designed by professionals—see all past doodles here—but Google also runs Google 4 Doodle contests, during which students can try their hands at redesigning the logo.

Google 4 Doodle Entrants Maria I
One state finalist for this year's Doodle 4 Google contest is Maria I, of Chestnut Ridge Middle School, NJ

This year, K–12 students in the U.S. were invited to create a doodle on the theme of "My Best Day Ever..." More than 130,000 doodles were sent in from students around the country, and today Google announced 50 state winners (and voting opened for the National Winner). Later this month, the entries from 50 state winners will be displayed at the Museum in the Rose Center Gallery from May 22 through July 14.
