We live in digitally democratic times, and for Singapore’s Jubilee year, you’ll get to vote on the Google Doodle that will be on millions of screens across Singapore.
Google has started a Doodle 4 Google competition so that people can send their most creative Google doodles based on the theme “Singapore: The Next 50 Years”. And not just anyone, participants are students from the age of 4-18, since they form the future generation.
You can look through the gallery of submissions to envision the sort of future that these young minds have dreamt up for Singapore. But we’ve made it a little easier for you by showcasing our top tech-inspired picks from the five different age groups.
