Google announced the 12 student finalists of Doodle 4 Google, a nationwide competition inviting students from kindergarten to grade 12 to redesign the Google logo, and it’s now Canadians turn to vote for their favourite doodles.

Google is asking Canadians to vote for their favourite doodles by June 2 to give students a chance to have the winner’s artwork takeover for a day and win a $10,000 university scholarship as well as a $10,000 scholarship for his/her school. In fact, Canadian voting will help determine four grade group winners (Kindergarten – Grade 3; Grades 4 – 6; Grades 7 – 9; and Grades 10 – 12), with each winner receiving a $5,000 technology award for their schools.

In March, Google kicked off Doodle 4 Google in Canada by asking students across the country to use their imagination and answer the question, “What I see for Canada’s future is…”

This tribute to Canada’s upcoming 150th birthday generated more than 10,000 submissions. The 12 student finalists are from Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia, and all 12 doodles can be seen at  Doodle 4 Google.

Two student finalists competing from Toronto are:
