This week you'll find a bunch of Valentine's Day deals -- yes for those of you keeping track it is next Friday -- and a great way to earn some scholarship money. Enjoy!
We'll start with that scholarship money. This is a great way to foster your child’s creative spirit and potentially have them earn some money for college. Google is holding its seventh annual Doodle 4 Google competition.
Young artists can submit a logo that finishes the phrase, "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place..." Submissions are divided into five grade groups (Grades K - 3, Grades 4 - 5, Grades 6 - 7, Grades 8 - 9, and Grades 10 - 12) for judging. The winner gets a $30,000 scholarship and $50,000 grant for his or her school. Forty-five state winners win trips to the San Francisco are and the four national finalists who do not win the big prize get $5,000 scholarships and more.
