The Lied Discovery Children's Museum is teaming up with the internet search giant Google for the Doodle 4 Google program.

The program encourages kids from kindergarten to high school seniors to create an artistic work then enter it into a contest. The winning art work will be displayed on Google's homepage, which is one of the most visited sites on the web, in May. Entries from southern Nevada will be displayed at Lied Discovery Children's Museum.

Interested artists can submit their work until March 23. The doodles will be judged by a panel that includes some of the biggest names in entertainment including Katy Perry and Jordin Sparks. After the field is narrowed, the general public will choose the best work from each age group.
