Google Doodles are exciting and updated regularly to celebrate an important event, which is also the case today. Google is celebrating Children’s Day, also the birth date of India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, with a space-themed doodle that’s been sketched by the winner of the 2018 ‘Doodle 4 Google’ contest.
Google organizes the ‘Doodle 4 Google’ contest every year to encourage kids to use their imagination and draw doodles, which are then plastered to the front page of the search engine. The theme for this year’s contest was ‘What Inspires me?’ and Pingla Rahul More of J. B. Vachha High School in Mumbai has managed to find her way to the front page of everyone’s favorite search engine on Children’s Day.
Pingla has managed to outshine over 75,000 other creations to get her “Galaxy Space Exploration’ vision to win the contest, along with a prize of Rs 5 lakh in the form of college scholarship, a trip to the Google India offices, and a lot more. In the official blog post, Pingla goes on to explain her doodle as under:
“In my Doodle, I demonstrated what inspires me. I am extremely inspired by Space Exploration as there is still so much more to know about our Universe — from planets to stars to galaxies and beyond. It is inspiring to learn how small we are, and how small our problems are, in the grand scheme of things.”
She further adds that her intention was to show herself viewing the expanse of the whole universe through the telescope, along with spaceships, constellations, and planets in the form of the Google logo. Pingla is accompanied by 4 other winners, divided by Class and their creations are as under:
The winning entry was picked by a judged by a 4-member panel which consisted of Ryan Germick, the leader of Google’s doodle team, YouTubers Sejal Kumar and Rob, as well as Arun Iyer. So, Google is still following its long-running tradition of organizing and picking winners from the ‘Google 4 Doodle’ contest for Children’s Day.
Finally, we would like to wish all the kids out there a very Happy Children’s Day from the Beebom team.
