Is your child a budding Picasso? My fridge sure thinks mine is an artiste extraordinaire. Now is the time for her to get to work becauseGoogle is running a contest for Canadian students to design the Google banner to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday.
Children from Kindergarten to grade 12 can submit a Google doodle based on the theme "What I see for Canada's future is ..."
The winning drawing will be judged on "artistic merit, creativity and originality" and can be made from almost any medium from crayons to computer code. The due date for submissions in May 2.The winning doodle will be selected by Google employees and guest judges including federal Science Minister Kirsty Duncan.
The winning artist will not only have his or her google doodle featured as the Google banner, but will also receive a $10,000 scholarship, a $10,000 technology grant for his or her school and a trip to Toronto where the winning drawing will be revealed. How cool is that?
I am pulling out the construction paper and markers and putting my munchkins to work. What about you?
