This years winner is  11-year old Audrey Zhang of New York. She is a third time finalist in this competition. Not only is Audrey’s animated drawing headlining the Google page today but she also won a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for her school and on top of that Google.org donated $20,000 in her name to charity: Water toward providing clean water to schools in Bangladesh.

“To make the world a better place, I invented a transformative water purifier. 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.”
– Audrey Zhang, 11

The Google doodlers team spent a day with Audrey to turn her illustration into a moving animation which is what you see today on the Google page. Google Doodle 4 – 2014 winners
