Your Vote Counts! Doodles by Kids

Google Doodle 4 Google contest in the U.S. Google doodles are the special "dressed-up" logos that Google run on their homepage for holidays and other events, and Doodle 4 Google is an opportunity for one child to have his/her artwork displayed on their homepage as a doodle for hundreds of millions of people to see. This year's theme "What I Wish for the World," and tap into not only children's creativity but also what they want their future to look like.

You can help Google to select National Finalist from 40 regional winners. Your Vote Counts! Just click to the grades and Vote for the Best. Click to the Doodles and amazing Ideas from children. World Peace, Spread Literacy, Save Energy, Be Friendly nations, Stop War, Recycle the future, healthy world, etc are the messages through Doodles. You can even view the State Finalists. Approx 400 Doodles were chosen.

It is unfortunate that children in India cannot . Yet I guess, this will be an inspiration and let our Kids Wish for a Better World - Get them to write or paint and pin up in your School/home/club paste boards. Even you can send to Kidsfreesouls to add to Paste Board section.

Btw, here is Chief Google Doodler Dennis Hwang drawing away the Doodles...It's fun to watch! Also here's last year's Awards for Doodles.
