Doodle 4 Google National Winner: Hope For A New Beginning

doodle-4-googleMay 21, 2009 Earlier this spring I wrote about the history of the cool and everchanging logos on the Google homepage delighting us all…including my favorite salute to Seuss.

Yesterday it was about Ida, the 47 million year old fossilized dinosaur…(though some at LiveScience are saying “Idaknow-about-this” ancestry-missing link bit…) Today it’s about resurgence, renewal and rebirth of a damaged eco-system…via the  National winner of the ‘What I wish for the world’ Doodle 4 Google contest for kids.

If you haven’t found out that you can scroll-n-stall over the homepage logo to reveal why it’s there and in honor of what, give it a go! As promised, San Antonio middle-school student Christin Engelberth, the National winner owns the work unveiled today, titled, “A New Beginning.” Google has been searching out the next generation of young artists in conjunction with the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum every year for quite awhile now.

Pairing kids with creative concepts is a slam dunk way to get some user generated content worth publishing, especially if they have a shot at snagging the homepage prominence on the worldwide web…

Christin describes,

“My doodle, expresses my wish that in the current crisis discoveries will be made. That in these discoveries solutions will be found to help the Earth prosper once more. That those solutions will help the world get back on its feet, and create a better place for everyone.”

Ditto that, Christin.

Congrats on both your vision and your execution. May humanity follow an equally productive path…



  1. may i know one thing why dont u serve doodle 4 google for youth?

  2. Not sure what you mean…I love the concept of a doodle 4 google for youth though, and if by ‘serve’ you mean ‘sponsor’ that’s an easy one…we’re a tiny nonprofit sans funding. Google should ‘serve’ us! 😉
