A Long Island fifth-grade student has earned some serious bragging rights: Her artwork is currently featured on Google’s homepage as the current Doodle 4 Google contest winner!
This year’s Doodle 4 Google competition - the company’s seventh annual challenge - asked K-12 students to draw one thing to make the world a better place. Audrey Zhang did just that with a drawing of a mythical water purification system entitled "Back to Mother Nature", a concept that beat out more than 100,000 entries. "To make the world a better place, I invented a transformative water purifier," Google quoted Zhang as saying. "It takes in dirty and polluted water from rivers, lakes and even oceans, then massively transforms the water into clean, safe and sanitary water. When humans and animals drink this water, they will live a healthier life." This was Zhang’s first win but her third year as a finalist in the contest. Whoa!
Zhang’s artwork not only won her a spot on Google’s homepage but also a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for her school and a $20,000 charity donation in her name toward providing clean water to schools in Bangladesh.
