Doodle 4 Google competition to celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday

By Sonya Davidson

Google launches this year's Doodle 4 Google competition that invites kids across Canada to celebrate the country's 150th Birthday by redesiging the Google logo. Based on the theme "What I see for Canada's future...." the competiton offers entrants a chance to win tens of thousands in prizing and a chance to be featured on Google.ca

"Doodle 4 Google is a chance for young Canadians to dream and think big. At Google, we are trying to make the future world a better place, by building new technologies, investing in initiatives and making the internet more accessible," said Google vice-president and Google Canada managing director, Sam Sebastian. "This year's competition is all about celebrating the future of Canada. We're excited to see how students imagine the next 150 years!"

Student's doodles will be judged on artistic merit, creativity and originality, and representation of the theme. A panel of guests judges and Google employees, including YouTube stars Mitchel Moffit and Gregory Brown of AsapSCIENCE, the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, En Masse co-founder Jason Botkin, president of the National Inuit Youth Council Maatalii Okali and Google Doodler Sophie Daio, will select the top doodles across grade groups. Following a public vote, four grade group finalists will receive a trip to Toronto, where the first place winning doodle will be announced. 

This year, students can submit a doodle made from almost any medium...including code! Ladies Learning Code created an online tutorial offering inspiration and a step-by-step guide to coding a Google doodle. 

All throughout the month of April, parents and kids can visit the Art Gallery of Ontario to get inspired and create a doodle during Family Sundays. 

Participating classrooms can use accompanying lesson plans to help guide students, while also integrating the project into classroom learning. 

Interested students, parents and teachers can visit g.co/d4gcanada for contest rules, more information and to download entry forms. 

Last day to submit a doodle is May 2, 2017.
