(WTHR) – Ever noticed the changing doodles on Google's homepage? Well, Google's annual 'Doodle for Google' contest is back and they're looking for new doodles to feature!

This is the 11th year for the contest and there's a big prize for the winner and the winner's school.

The theme this year is “When I grow up I hope”.

According to the contest page, "this year’s theme invites you to show us what you hope for in your future. Classrooms on Mars? Shoes that can fly? Food for everyone? A pill that cures everything? Take your ideas and put them into your Doodle!"

The winner's drawing will be displayed on Google.com for a day and they'll receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology package for their school or non-profit organization and a trip to Google's headquarters in California.

Four finalists will also each receive a $5,000 scholarship and free trip to Google headquarters.

The contest is open to students in grades K-12.

Jimmy Fallon and Kermit the frog will also be guest judges.

The deadline to enter is March 18 at 11 p.m. EST.

For a chance to be a 'Doodle for Google' winner, parents and teachers can head over to doodle4google.com to enter your submission before the contest closes!
