Late Work Policy

Doodle 4 Google: About the competition FAQ
      • Extra opportunity for students who are particularly creative and a potential opportunity for differentiation in classrooms
      • Google is asking K-12 students to create their doodles based on the theme “If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place...” To enter the competition students download the application form, print it, doodle their version of the Google logo based off this year's theme and submit online or by mail.
"One talented young artist will work alongside the Google doodlers to animate his or her doodle to be featured on the Google homepage, receive a $30,000 college scholarship, and win a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school.”
You have one week after the assignments due date to turn in late work. There is a penalty though (noted above). So get your late work turned in as soon as possible!
