Google in search for winners

4th November 2005 at 00:00
Google has challenged 4,000 schoolchildren in the London area to design a doodle for its logo. The competition will kick-start its education activities and help to spread the word that it is more than just a search engine.

"Google has become a key teaching tool in classrooms; for example, Google Maps has let them discover the world in a whole new way," said Nikesh Arora, vice president of European Operations.

The winner gets an interactive whiteboard and projector for their class, and an invite to the opening of the Googleplex on November 16.

Google's webmaster and Doodle guru Dennis Hwang - the man responsible for all the cool "mastheads" - will judge the entries.
