Doodle 4 Google: Students Design Search Engine Logos

You must have seen some of the Google Doodles that normally replace the normal Google logo on big events such as birthdays of famed people, different festivals and times of year. The most recent one being Martin Luther King Day, before that we have seen the history of St.Andrew’s day and Scooby Doo and the gang helping out on the Halloween Doodle.

Now we are reporting that there is a competition being held by Google for students to design their own Doodle, Athima Chansanchai of Technolog has reported that the event has been running since 2008. Kids from grades K-12 compete with each other by creating their own doodle which they are all hoping Google will take on and display for the world to see.

Google don’t just display the doodle and say be done with you, oh no. Last years winner Makenzie Melton won the competition and in turn, Google gave the school a $25,000 technology grant for her school, a $15,000 college scholarship and a netbook, the winning doodle is the one featured as our article image.
