As users and supporters of Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and G-Suite products and programs, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is pleased to partner with Google Canada to encourage participation in an exciting initiative in celebration of Canada's 150 anniversary. The 'Doodle for Google' initiative offers teachers the opportunity to encorporate the contest into your classroom for students and schools to be eligible for some great prizes. Please see the message from Google below:
"At Google, we think about what's next. We are committed to investing in Canada's future, by building new technologies and investing in initiatives that give our youth a platform to voice their creativity.
We truly believe that the best way to invest in Canada's next 150 years is to invest in our youth. That’s why we’re launching Doodle 4 Google, a national contest inviting students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 to redesign the logo for the Google.ca homepage for a day.*
This year, with Doodle 4 Google, we're asking kids to imagine what Canada's future will look like and explore the exciting possibilities and cultural changes that technology, science, and innovation will bring through art. In other words, we’re asking that this year’s doodles explain “What I see for Canada’s future is…”
One talented student’s winning artwork will appear on the Google.ca homepage. The winner will also receive a $10,000 university scholarship and a $10,000 technology award for their school.
There are also prizes for our finalists, including Google tech. The schools of the finalists will also win technology awards.
Go to g.co/d4gCanada for more information and the entry form. Now, let’s get doodling!
