Doodle for Google is celebrating kindness


Kind people have always been our kinda people, and it appears Google agrees – kindness is the theme of this year’s Doodle for Google competition.


For the twelfth year in a row, Google is inviting budding child-artists in the US (from kindergarten to 12th grade) to be featured on the search engine’s homepage and inspire millions with their creativity.


Doodle For Google


Following on from its previous requests for drawings based on things that inspire us and even time travel, the theme for 2020 is ‘I show kindness by…’.


Google says: “This year’s theme invites you to tell us how you show kindness. Is it by helping around your home? Volunteering in your community’s green space? Maybe it’s comforting someone who’s down, or picking up trash in the park. However you define it, let us know how you bring a little bit more kindness into the world. Take your ideas and bring them to life in your doodle!”


This year’s national winner will have their artwork featured on the Google homepage for a day and receive a $30,000 college scholarship. The winner’s school will also receive a $50,000 technology package.


An amazing panel of judges is also being assembled for the drawing contest, including Rodney Robinson, the US’ 2019 National Teacher of the Year.


The contest is open for submissions until 13 March 2020.
