SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Google on Monday launched a competition that will let a United States (US) student "doodle" his or her way to cash for college along with landing grant money to fund technology education at their grade school.

The California-based Internet titan announced its sixth annual "Doodle 4 Google" contest in which students from kindergarten to 12th grade vie to create a winning "doodle", a creative design playing off the search page logo.

The doodle contest theme is "My best day ever".

"Each year we have a broad theme to provide some inspiration while letting young artists' imagination roam free," Google said in a blog post. "We hope to give kids a chance to explore themes that could be imaginary, exploratory or even sentimental, past, present or future."
