Google Home Page Art Competition

November 13, 2013

At Google, doodles are an exciting part of the Google Homepage.  We are pleased to invite your school to take part in the Doodle 4 Google ‘if I could invent anything, I would invent...’ competition, which offers school pupils across Canada the chance to have their artwork viewed by millions of people.

At Google we use the homepage logo designs to celebrate different people, events or special dates. These Google ‘doodles’ are usually created by our web designers and represent important cultural occasions. However, for the first year in Canada we would like to open this space up to the designs of Canadian school children.

The theme of our Doodle 4 Google Canada competition is "if I could invent anything, I would invent..."  Submissions will be accepted now through December 31st, the entry form is available at (EN) or (FR).  

All Doodles will be voted on by the public through our online voting system, in addition we have some stellar Canadian judges who will narrow down the submissions to the top 25 Doodles.  These judges include:

· Astronaut and former International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield,  

· film & television actress Karine Vanasse,

· Royal Ontario Museum CEO Janet Carding, and

· Ann Makinowski, winner of the 2013 Google Science Fair

Prizes?  The winning Doodle will receive a $10,000 scholarship, a Google Chromebook and a $10,000 grant for their school.  Plus, the winning Doodles will be proudly displayed at the Royal Ontario Museum!

Who can enter the contest? Students grades kindergarten to 12 in Canada.

How do I enter? You can enter online at our Canadian Doodle 4 Google website.

What are the important dates to remember?  Contest deadline is December 31st. Check out the remainder timeline on our Doodle 4 Google website

Who should I contact if I have questions?

Good luck and we look forward to seeing your school’s doodles.


Yours sincerely,

The Doodle 4 Google team
