Doodle 4 Google 2013 Competition Launch

Wangari Maathai Google Doodle, 1st April 2013
As Kenya celebrates its 50th anniversary since independence in December, Google Kenya will launch the Doodle 4 Google 2013 competition, which will be open to all Kenyan school students aged between 6 years to 18 years.

The competition will encourage them to create their own doodles, allowing the students a chance to win a techie prize for himself/herself and for his/her school.

The theme for the 2013 contest is “My Kenya.”
Doodles are the fun and creative changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists. 

The media kick-off event for this national contest will take place on Monday, 13th May 2013.

The concept of the doodle was born in 1998 when Google founders Larry and Sergey played with the corporate logo to indicate their attendance at the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.
