Doodle 4 Google: You Can Make Google’s Next Doodle Logo


Attention Western New York Teachers!

Google has opened up a competition for all K-12 grade students to submit their own Google logo. The winning logo will be displayed on Google’s home page for a day. A panel of judges will select 40 finalist doodles, from which the public will help select a favorite to be featured on the homepage on May 22nd, 2008.

Great learning opportunity here! They have an amazing resource page full of lesson plans and ideas to make this an educational opportunity!

DeFranco Real Estate loves to support the local classrooms and we give away grants to teachers in Niagara and Erie County each month. We thought that perhaps a teacher might find a great use to take advantage of this opportunity and use our funds to create a great lesson behind it! We will even feature your entire classes Google logos on our BLOG!. Hurry the deadline to register your school and classroom is fast approaching!

Everyone is familiar with the amazing artwork that Google does for the various holiday with their logo. That artwork is the brainchild of 29-year-old Google Webmaster Dennis Hwang. Today Google doodles, the drawings that are designed on, around and through the Google logo their home page are considered art.
