Google Launches Doodles Contest in the UK

Children in the UK have the opportunity to have their talented works of art featured on Google's homepage. The competition known as Doodle4Google encourages school kids to design a Google page that explains what it means to be British. One of the main aims of the competition is to demonstrate how the youth views modern Britain

30 doodles will first be chosen by a panel of experts and then folks on the internet can vote for their favority 3 doodles while Dennis Hwang, who's the web developer that designs Google's special homepages, gets to have the final say and pick the winning doodle.

So what does the winner get apart from having his/her doodle displayed on Google's homepage for a day? well Google is giving away a free air ride, complete with accomodation and everything else for 7 nights for a max of 4 people (including family/guardian) to their googleplex office in San Francisco plus helping Dennis, who's the original Doodler to design another doodle. Sounds wicked eh!

And it's just not one prize either, there are many other prizes as well for those 30 doodlers, check them out here.

If you're a teacher then you may want to register your school here & you could download the doodle school pack here (It's a zipped up file)

May the best win & Good Luck to those prospective doodler kids!
