The winning Doodle in the contest is featured on the Google India Homepage. The deadline to submit doodles is coming to an end with last date for submission on September 30, 2019.

There are 5 class groups in which the doodles will be grouped:
- Class 1-2

Students are free to use any material to create their doodle as long as it adheres to the theme of the year. The 2019 Doodle for Google theme is 'WHEN I GROW UP, I HOPE...'
Along with the doodle, students also need to submit a statement explaining what they have drawn and how it represents something they hope for.
