Entries must be received by Google Australia by September 7.

A panel of judges will select finalists in four age groups, and then there 
will be public voting for the winner of each category. Finally, Google 
will pick an overall winner from those four. 

The national winner will receive a 15in MacBook Pro for his or her self, 
plus a touchscreen whiteboard and $10,000 worth of tech gear for their 
school. The winning doodle will be displayed on www.google.com.au on 
January 26, 2008.

The three runners-up win a touchscreen whiteboard for their schools, plus 
a goody bag of Google merchandise. The remaining 28 state and territory 
winners plus the other 288 finalists also get a goody bag. 

Each participant will receive a bookmark and a certificate.
