Google is looking for a Canadian student to draw its ‘Doodle’ homepage logo. The company announced last week that it is bringing its ‘Doodle for Google’ program to Canada and will select one student drawn ‘Doodle’ to be featured on Google.ca.

A $10,000 scholarship is up for grabs, as is a $10,000 grant for the winner’s school. The top 25 entries will also be shown in an exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum and all 25 winners will be flown to Toronto for the exhibit’s launch.

In a statement, Google Canada managing director Chris O’Neill said, “Doodle 4 Google is a wonderful way to encourage students of all ages to put their imaginations to the test and think creatively about invention and discovery. We’re incredibly proud to celebrate the energy and creativity of our youth, and to be able to showcase the ideas of some of Canada’s up-and-coming young artists and innovators.”

The contest runs through Dec. 31 and winners will be chosen by a panel including astronaut Chris Hadfield and Janet Carding, director & CEO of the Royal Ontario Museum.
