‘Doodle 4 Google – My Britain’ Competition for UK Schools

By Posted 2006 Updated   Google

‘Doodle 4 Google – My Britain’ is a nationwide design competition open to the UK’s 10 million school children between the ages of 4 and 18 years. Young people are being invited to design a Google doodle explaining what it means to be British today.

Google Doodles are those beautiful logos which you see daily on the Google homepage commemorating holidays and events. Dennis Hwang is the official logo designer for Google who creates those Google Doodles.

This is the first nationwide Doodle 4 Google competition and is open to every school in the UK. The winning doodle, which will be displayed on the Google UK homepage for a day, will be seen by around 18 million people.

Expert judges will shortlist thirty doodles and the British public will vote to choose their favourite design in each age group and Google’s Original Doodler, Dennis Hwang, will then choose one National Winner, who will be flown to Google’s HQ, the Googleplex in California, and help Dennis to design a doodle.

The School Pack is the essential guide for teachers and has all the information needed to enter the competition and also includes lesson plans. Students must enter the Google Doodle contest through their school and there is a limit of six entries per school.
