Doodle 4 Google and Win a Prize, or Doodle on the Screen for Fun

Mountain View search engine giant has launched a new competition that could have your child’s scribble becoming Google’s next logo. Additional prizes include a visit to the Google offices in New York, a t-shirt displaying the doodle that will be used as Google’s logo for a full day, a laptop, a $15,000 college scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for the school of the winner. You can register until the 17th of March and the doodle must be handed in by March 31, 11:59 PM Pacific time. The theme of the competition is: “What I Wish for the World”

“These are exciting times and both our country and the world are on the brink of significant change. At Google we believe in thinking big, and dreaming big, and we can't think of anything more important than encouraging students to do the same. The Doodle 4 Google competition is open to all U.S. residents between the ages of 5 and 18 who attend elementary and secondary schools (i.e. grades K-12) in the U.S. Only teachers or school employees should register. Parents or students who are interested should contact their teacher to register them,” says Google.

Until you get your teacher to register your school, you can practice some doodling right on the computer screen – and by that I do not mean getting out some crayons and destroying the LCD display, I mean using DemoHelper. This free piece of software that weighs in at just 76k performs a very simple task – screen annotations. The software is mainly addressed for employees that want to give their presentations a Super Bowl flavor (let them highlight parts of the presentation in real time, or simply draw over them), but one could always use it to just have a bit of fun.

If you would like to get DemoHelper, a download location is available here.
