Google India has launched Doodle4Google Competition 2010, a ‘doodling’ competition that invites children from 5 to 16 years across India to create a Google doodle based on the theme ‘My dream for India’. The competition encourages young doodlers to imagine what India would be like in two decades from now and capture those images in colour and paper.

According to Google India, the winning doodle will be displayed on its home page, Google.co.in, on Children’s Day, November 14, 2010. The final winner will also receive a technology starter package including a laptop, a year’s internet connection and a Rs 2 lakh technology grant for the school that he or she will represent.

Nikhil Rungta, country marketing head, Google India, has said, “The D4G contest aims to unleash the creativity of young kids of India and inspire them to innovate. Last year’s winning Doodle, titled ‘My India full of life’ was one such example of creativity by a 4th Standard student. It’s exciting to see how innovative kids can be while doodling and we are all excited to see what’s in store for us this year.”

Doodles are creative Google logos that appear on some special days, to commemorate scientific and artistic achievements, historic or seasonal events, and other local occasions. For over a decade, Google has been designing innovative logos called Doodles for its homepage and Dennis Hwang – the master doodler – has been driving this innovation.
