Google Germany’s Girl’s Day Logo and More

Today is Girl’s Day (“Mädchen-Zukunftstag”) in Germany – and potentially other countries – and is showing a special logo with a pigtailed kid writing math formulas on a green board. Girl’s Day is intended to get more girls into jobs which more males usually get into. Today is also Boy’s Day (“Neue Wege für Jungs”) intended to get more boys interested in jobs predominantly taken by women.

In other news, Google has started a doodle competition for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (note you need to e.g. switch your browser language to German to see this). Everyone between 5 to 18 years can participate; the theme is footballsoccerwhatyoucallit and Google says the logo will be displayed during the day of the European (men’s) championship final on June 29th, among other prizes to be won. A couple of designs are already online in Picasa.

[Thanks Hebbet!]
