Google Competition

Are you looking for a great cross- curricular project to involve your class in over the next few weeks?. Why not take part in the 'My Hero-Doodle for Google contest'. The competition is open to children from 5-16, who attend school in the UK.

To enter children need to draw a google doodle, or to put it another way a google logo, which if it wins will appear on the google home- page for a day!. Winners will also get a trip to California, which is a bigger prize than the Redbridge Film Competition!!. The theme this year is heroes and all the information, including lesson plans and templates of the original logo, can be found on the links below. I know that some Redbridge schools have been involved in this before and I am keen to showcase any entries from across the borough, winners or losers, so if you enter, do send some images to me too

This year the Google Education Team has partnered with Next Generation Learning to award a special prize to a winning entry that is done purely on a computer.

Here is the man that normally does those great doodles for Google during holidays and special occasions, Dennis Hwang.
