I hadn't heard of Doode 4 Google until today when I discovered an article about a student's fairy tale inspired entry making the top 40 finalists. See Falls City student earns Google recognition by Justin Much.
The fairy tale and fantasy inspired entry by Andrew Woodruff appears on the Regional Finalists page where you can vote for it--or a different design if you prefer it. There are some excellent logo interpretations to see there. I linked to the page with Woodruff's work, but do look at the other grade levels. I have a hard time choosing a favorite, but wanted to share the fairy tale inspired one here for obvious reasons, but there are many clever ones that have nothing to do with fairy tales.
Voting is open through 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 25. The search engine will then tally votes and announce four national finalists, announcing the national winner the following day in New York.
The winning doodle will appear on the Google.com on May 27. The finals winner will receive a $15,000 scholarship and the student's school will receive $25,000 for technology investments.
So go vote and have an influence on what appears on Google's front page on the 27th and support an aspiring student artist while you're at it...
