Google U.K. doodle contest

The search engine known for its cute and colorful drawings on its main page is holding a doodle contest for students in the United Kingdom in what it bills as the first nationwide Doodle 4 Google competition.

"At Google, we like to reflect the ever changing world of our users through the logo designs on our home page. These 'doodles' celebrate different people, events or special dates and, until now, have been designed by our original Doodler, 28-year-old Dennis Hwang," the Web site says.

"The 'Doodle 4 Google - My Britain' competition asks young people across the U.K. to design a doodle that represents what it means to be British today. The winning doodle, which will be displayed on the Google UK home page for a day, will be seen by around 18 million people."

In November, Google held a similar contest that was open to 25 schools in London.
