Two days ago Google announced this year's winner of Doodle 4 Google competition and the prize went to Sabrina Brady from Sparta High School, Wisconsin, 10-12. I am sharing with you her doodle below together with the other finalist Doodles I selected for you. But before that, let me provide you with some brief information nuggets on what Doodle 4 Google is all about.
What is Doodle 4 Google ?
Doodle 4 Google is a competition open to K-12 students of U.S. schools to create their own Google doodle. This year’s theme for the doodles is “My Best Day Ever…”Why is Google Doing This Competition ?
Doodles are meant to surprise and delight people when they visit the Google homepage. Who better to surprise and delight than talented and creative young artists! Google would not exist today if it weren’t for creativity, passion, and imagination so we love to celebrate and promote these values in our younger users.What are the prizes for the winners ?
The National Winner for Doodle 4 Google in 2012 was Dylan Hoffman, a 7 year old from Caledonia, Wisconsin. Dylan’s design was selected from more than 114,000 student submissions from all over the U.S.
