    “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

“Since the beginning of time, ideas big and small, practical and playful, have started out as doodles.”

D4G logoFor 2014, Google asks students to exercise their creative imaginations around the theme:

“If I Could Invent One Thing to Make the World a Better Place…”

Fifty state finalists will get an all-expense-paid trip to Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California for a final awards ceremony. One lucky student artist will see their artwork appear on the Google homepage, receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant.
