Doodle 4 Google Canada contest
We’ve all seen them, the famous Google Doodles that adorn the Google Search page and usually change up every day. With Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations ramping up, Google Canada has launched the Doodle 4 Google Canada contest for students in kindergarten through grade 12. The theme for the contest is “What I see for Canada’s future is…”
The winner of the national Doodle 4 Google Canada contest will have their doodle featured for a day on the Google.ca homepage, and will also receive a $10,000 university scholarship, a Google Chromebook, and a $10,000 technology award for their current school along with a trip to the final event on June 13, 2017. Not a small prize for one lucky student.
Entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on May 2nd in order to be considered. The entries will be put into four different groups (Kindergarten – Grade 3, Grades 4 – 6, Grades 7 – 9, and Grades 10 – 12) and three finalists from each group will go onto the final round.
Google has also developed a number of student activities for teachers and parents to download for the various grade groups to assist with the process.
