Google crowns national winner and three grade group winners of Doodle 4 Google Canada
Today, Google Canada revealed the national winner and three grade group winners of this yearâ€™s Doodle 4 Google contest. More than 12,000 students from across the country submitted doodles around the theme â€œWhat I see for Canadaâ€™s future isâ€¦â€. Young artists imagined a country where robots could cure disease, others dreamed of living on Mars, while some saw a world united by nature.
Following a very close public vote, where Canadians voted more than 465,000 times, we revealed our four incredibly talented grade group winners at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Of those four masterpieces, 11th-grader Jana Sofia Panemâ€™s Doodle, “A Bright Future” was selected as the national winner!
On June 14th, Canadians can enjoy Janaâ€™s masterpiece on the Google.ca homepage. Google Canada is also honoured to award her with a $10,000 university scholarship and a $10,000 technology award for her school. The three additional grade group winners, listed below, will have their Google Doodles featured in the online Doodle 4 Google gallery, receive a $5,000 technology award for their schools and a Chromebook.
