Bangalore, Sep 16: After receiving a great response to its first Doodle competition in India, Google has announced the second edition of Doodle 4 Google.

The internet giant, which is known for redesigning its logo time to time to celebrate different events across the world, has invited young doodlers from India to submit their designs for this year's Children's Day.

The theme of Doodle 4 Google 2010 is 'My Dream for India'.

"We want you to fast forward to the future and capture your image of what you think India will be like 20 years from today," Google said in a statement, announcing the competition.

Some of its recommendations include - 'A cleaner, greener India', 'Freedom from poverty', 'Education for all', 'The world"s center of technology' and 'Better roads, futuristic cities'.

However, the interested candidates need not feel restricted by these themes as Google hopes to see fresh and creative vision for the future of India.

The shortlisted doodles will then be put to online vote on this Doodle 4 Google site, where the Indian public will elect the winning design.

The winning doodle will deck Google homepage on Nov 14, when India celebrates Children Day, which also happens to be the birth anniversary of India's first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, as a tribute to his love for children.

The last date to submit the doodles is Sep 25. So interested students from Class 1 to Class 10 can start with registration.
