Google kicks off 'Doodle 4 Google'

School children encouraged to join Google design competition

Australia’s second "Doodle 4 Google" competition for school children was launched today.

The Google initiative invites Year 1 to 10 students across the country to design a Google logo inspired by a certain theme.

The winning student will have their design appear on the Google homepage and will also collect $10,000 worth of technology equipment for their school.

"Our logo lets us reflect the ever-changing world around us, and celebrate special people, events and dates. We can't wait to see the creative visions of Australia created by young Australians," Google Australia’s head of marketing, Jason Chuck, said.

Doodle 4 Google Australia first took place in 2007, and the winning entry appeared on the Google home page on Australia Day 2008.

Australian artists Ken Done and Anne Geddes, along with director of the Global Poverty Project Hugh Evans, will judge the entries this year and select 32 winners across age groups and regions.

Public voting will then pick four national winners, before the overall winner is picked in November by Google's Dennis Hwang, the company's original "Doodler".

This year’s theme is entitled: "My wish for Australia".
