I've never been much of an artist of the hands. My artistry has always come from my mouth in the ways of speaking and singing. My younger brother inherited the drawing gene. If you've got a kid student or are one, who has been blessed with the gift of art, you may want to direct their/your attention to a contest Google is running right now. You know those Google drawings you see when you go to their home page that changes everyday? Drawing one of those could score you $50,000. But you gotta hurry.

Their website states the details:
"Students in kindergarten through grade 12 can enter this contest, which ends tonight, March 18. Teachers can also enter on behalf of their students. The guidelines for what the students can submit are quite broad, leaving room for students to express their creativity. Artists can use any materials they want, and they can doodle anything that inspires them. To enter, you need to submit several items, including the entry form, the doodle itself and an artist statement about how the doodle represents something that inspires them. According to the website, submissions will be judged based on artistic merit, creativity and theme communication. The finalists will be chosen on a state-by-state basis, with a panel of Google executives selecting the national winner. Google will display the winner’s doodle on its homepage for the day. The national winner will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 technology package for their school or non-profit organization, a trip to the Google headquarters in California and plenty of Google swag and gear."
