Fifth Grader’s Animated Doodle to be Featured on Google Monday

6/9/2014 9:00:00 AM
Out of more than 100,000 submissions, the Google doodle designed by 11-year-old Audrey Zhang from Levittown, N.Y., was selected as this year’s winner. Audrey’s doodle — which is the first competition-winning doodle to be put into in animated form — will be seen by millions on the Google homepage on Monday, June 9.

Her doodle, titled “Back to Mother Nature,” depicts a transformative water purifier, taking dirty and polluted water and transforming it into clean drinking water for humans and animals, allowing for a healthier life and a healthier earth.

Google is donating $20,000 in her name to a charity to provide clean water and latrines to schools in Bangladesh. Additionally, Audrey’s school, Island Trees Middle School, will receive a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant.

This year, for the first time, the winner spent a day with the doodle team at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., to bring her doodle to life through animation.
