Students may enter one of five groups according to their age. From fifty finalists in each state, ten from each state will go on to compete at the national level. From this group, five national finalists will be chosen. One national winner will be selected. The national winner receives a scholarship to the college of their choice, and their school will receive a grant to be used for a computer lab or technology program. Each of the four national finalists will also receive a college scholarship plus other prizes.

Students are given a theme for their doodles. Drawings will be judged on how much creativity was demonstrated in incorporating the Google logo with the theme within each grade group. A panel of judges will help with the judging and the public also has the opportunity to judge online.

The competition is sponsored by Google, one of the largest corporations offering Internet search services and Internet-related products. Doodles have been a part of the homepage Google logo since 1998. Decorating the logo has been an ongoing activity to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and other important events.
