Students at St. Ursula Catholic School are 'doodling for Google' in a logo design contest to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday.
"As soon as I saw this, I knew my students would love it!" says Tricia Vanden Enden, a Grade 3-4 teacher at St. Ursula. "It's a great activity that combines science, technology and art."
The nation-wide contest invites students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 to redesign the Google logo. In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, Google is challenging students to submit an entry based on the theme "What I see for Canada's future is..."
"We're still working on it, but the ideas my students have come up with so far are very impressive," says Ms. Vanden Enden. "Some of the most common themes are peace, technology and a clean, healthy environment."
The contest is open until May 2nd. The winning entry will be featured on the Google homepage for a day and the student will receive a $10,000 scholarship, a Google Chromebook and a $10,000 award for the school.
