Three students from British Columbia named finalist in Canada’s Doodle 4 Google competition
Today, Google announced the 12 student finalists of Doodle 4 Google, a nationwide competition inviting students from kindergarten to grade 12 to redesign the Google logo, and three students from British Columbia are on the list!
Google is now encouraging Canadians to vote for their favourite doodles by June 2 to give students a chance to have their artwork featured on Google.ca for a day and win a $10,000 university scholarship.
In March, Google kicked off Doodle 4 Google in Canada by asking students across the country to use their imagination and answer the question “What I see for Canada’s future is…”, in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday. The judging panel was blown away by the 10K+ submissions.
Here are the finalists from British Columbia:

Into the 22nd Century

Doodle description: In the future, it is likely that Canada will achieve a lot in technology, especially the exploration of outer space.
