Google Ireland has launched an art and design competition for Irish schools children based around the Google logo. The competition — Doodle 4 Google — is open to primary and secondary school students, who will have to create a doodle — the drawings that are designed on, around and through the Google logo on the website’s homepage — based on the theme ‘My Ireland‘.
The winner’s design will be placed on the Google homepage in Ireland, the UK, Canada and the US to celebrate St Patrick’s Day on 17 March 2009. The winner will also win a laptop for themselves and their teacher and Google will also award a technology grant of EUR10,000 to the winning school. Schools interested in taking part must register by 7 November and must submit entries by 12 December 2008. For more information on the competition click here.
