However, this contest is only open to Malaysian primary and secondary school students. So for those who are only young at heart, maybe you can display your doodles on Instagram (or you can just help your kids or younger siblings with their designs).
There are four categories according to age groups: 7-9, 10-12, 13-15 and 16-17.
The winner will be featured on the front and centre of google.com.my this Malaysia Day, 16 September.
The Doodle 4 Google competition starts today (Thursday) and the last day for submission is at midnight, 31 July
This is a very rare opportunity because Google Doodles are usually created by the tech giant’s own creative team. So hurry up and head on to events.withgoogle.com/d4gmy
