The Doodle 4 Google 2013 contest was the same as every other year, as Google allowed students from kindergarten to 12 to enter the competition. However, each year the theme is different, with this year being about “My Best Day Ever.” We have to say that this subject was always going to stir up emotions.
The Winning Doodle – This was a poignant Doodle 4 Google winner, as the entry was from a 10-year-old girl named Sabrina Brady, with her Doodle being of her father being greeted by her after he came back from his 18-month tour in Iraq. Knowing people in the forces, I can sympathies with what the young girl went through, and how emotional it was when her father returned home.
Below we have a Doodle 4 Google video, where it explains all about the winning entry, such as how creative the young girl was, and why the judges picked hers as the winning Doodle.
Those of you living in the US will notice the Doodle 4 Google 2013 winning entry will be on the search engine homepage all day today, but the best part is that Google will put $30,000 into Sabrina’s college fund. That’s not all; Google is to also give her school a technology grant worth $50,000.
