Some students in the after-school program at the Martin Luther King Center are trying to go worldwide with their artwork.
   
They're in the "Doodle 4 Google" contest, a campaign to showcase student artwork on the Google homepage. 
     
Creative Affairs Productions partnered up with the center to help students convey the power of storytelling through illustration. 

"It's my drawing and it's going to be out there an other people will see my creation," 5th grader Caleb Martin said.

The doodles will be submitted for judging.

"You never know. We may end up with a winner from here but we never know unless we try. So, We have them doodling," President of Creative Affairs Productions Tracy White said. "The theme this year is "My Best Day Ever" so they are getting their juices going, thinking about their best day ever and putting it on to paper."

Google will choose a winner from every state as well as one national winner. 
      
Each winner gets a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school program.
