Doodle 4 google
Google in Australia have launched a doodle 4 google competition which encourages school aged kids to design their own Google icon based around an Australian theme.
Consumers will have a chance to vote for their favourite entries, and the overall winner will have their doodle featured on the Google Australia homepage on Australia Day 2008.
Perspective: This is a nice touch by Google to promote their business with schools and also to encourage participatory consumer generated media.
Update: here’s a youtube video of Australian kids talking about the contest
