Earlier this year Google invited kids from around the United States to submit their doodles using the Google logo with the following theme in mind “What I Wish For The World”. They received over 28,000 doodles from all 50 states.
There are 40 regional winners (in their various age-group categories) which you can review and vote for online. Entries close at midnight on May 18th, 2009. The winner will be announced on May 20th with the winner’s doodle appearing on the Google home page.
Below are a few samples from the various age groups – but go on and take a look for yourself, and vote. [via Google Blog]
My wish for the world is that everyone would get along and treat one another in a nice and loving way. We could all be friends! - Miriam Elizabeth Lowery (5)
What I wish for the world is that every child and every adult have a chance to go to school and learn. If every person in the world could have the opportunity to go to school, it would make the world a better place, not only for the world, but for the people in it. - Lauren Sarantopolos (12)
What I wish for the world is unity. The theme is represented by connected paper clips in my doodle because they represent unity. Each clip is interconnected much of the way people are. - Abigail Kois (12)
Flowers bring color and fragrance into our lives. Their beauty and diversity reflects that of people. They can be playful or serious and even remind us of the cycle of life and death. - Emily Dorsey (16)
