Google has brought back its popular “Doodle 4 Google” contest, where students in grades K-12 can submit their original art work (in any medium, naturally) to be featured as the homepage logo for the Internet behemoth.

According to Google’s official blog, this year’s theme centers around “What I see for the future…” and will be selected by a panel of judges that will include the Google’s own Google Doodlers.

In addition to the honor and glory of having their art on the homepage, the national winner will receive $30k towards a college scholarship, $50k for their school to spend on technology, and the chance to work with the Doodle team at the Google home base in Mountain View, CA.

The contest is open until December 2, 2016, which gives artists who can envision the future plenty of time to get their creative juices flowing.
