TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - With thousands of dollars in prizes on the line for kids and students across the country, Google Canada has issued a last call for entries for the first-ever Doodle 4 Google contest. K-12 students have until December 31, 2013 to design a doodle for the Google Canada homepage on the theme, "If I could invent anything, I would invent…"

The national winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship, a $10,000 grant for their school and be featured in a Royal Ontario Museum special exhibit in March 2014.

A panel of guest judges, including astronaut Chris Hadfield and actress Karine Vanasse, will select twenty five regional winners. The 25 finalists will receive a trip to Toronto, where five regional winners will be named and the first place winning doodle will be announced alongside the launch of the ROM exhibit.
