Google encourages Vietnamese kids to create its doodle

Vietnamese kids now have their first-ever chance to have their works featured as the famous Google Doodle next year, as the world’s largest search engine launched a design competition on Wednesday.

The Doodle 4 Google Competition is designed to encourage eligible school students to use their creativity to create their own interpretation of the Google logo, Google said on the competition’s website.

This is the first time Doodle 4 Google has reached Vietnam, after going through 25 countries across the globe over the last 15 years, during which the competition has solicited thousands of creative ideas.

A Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google's homepage that is intended to celebrate holidays, events, achievements, and people. The first Google Doodle was in honor of the Burning Man Festival, a week-long annual event celebrated in the U.S., in 1998.

The competition is now open to all Vietnamese students aged 7 to 15, with each entrant allowed to submit only one entry.

Eighteen finalists will receive a bicycle and a certificate, and their works will be featured in the Gallery section of the competition's website,

The winning entry will be displayed on Vietnam’s localized version of Google,, where hundreds of millions of Google users can see it, for 24 hours on March 6.

The Doodle 4 Google campaign runs from November 28, 2014 to January 26, 2015, with the awards ceremony scheduled for January 8.

“Children’s paintings always reflect original ideas and hopes in big dreams of their own that adults can never have,” Sophie Tran, director of marketing in Vietnam with Google Asia-Pacific, said at the competition announcement ceremony.
