Google calls on Canadian kids to draw a Google doodle
TORONTO – Google is calling on Canadian kids to come up with a doodle for the search giant’s home page by the end of the month.
Students in kindergarten through Grade 12 can submit an image for the Doodle 4 Google contest that fits the theme, “If I could invent anything I would invent…” by the deadline of December 31.
After the deadline closes, a panel of judges — including retired astronaut Chris Hadfield, actress Karine Vanasse — will narrow down the submissions to 75 regional finalists. Eventually, 25 finalists will be flown to Toronto for the award presentation.
It will then be up to the public to vote between Jan. 31 and Feb. 14, 2014 to determine the winner, who will receive a $10,000 scholarship. The winner’s school will also receive a $10,000 grant.
The winning doodle will be featured on Google’s homepage on February 26.
