Google Canada is sponsoring a national contest inviting students from Grades Primary to Twelve to design the logo for the Google.ca homepage for a day. The winning “Doodle” will be featured on the Google homepage for 24 hours. As well, the winning student will receive a $10,000 university scholarship, a Google Chromebook, and a $10,000 technology award for their school.
At Google, we think about what's next. We are committed to investing in Canada's future, by building new technologies and investing in initiatives that give our youth a platform to voice their creativity.
We truly believe that the best way to invest in Canada's next 150 years is to invest in our youth. That’s why we’re launching Doodle 4 Google, a national contest inviting students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 to redesign the logo for the Google.ca homepage for a day.*
This year, with Doodle 4 Google, we're asking kids to imagine what Canada's future will look like and explore the exciting possibilities and cultural changes that technology, science, and innovation will bring through art. In other words, we’re asking that this year’s doodles explain “What I see for Canada’s future is…”
One talented student’s winning artwork will appear on the Google.ca homepage. The winner will also receive a $10,000 university scholarship and a $10,000 technology award for their school.
There are also prizes for our finalists, including Google tech. The schools of the finalists will also win technology awards.
