Kids are great. Their optimism, unique view of the world, and relentless energy are refreshing, and Google tapped into that with its Doodle 4 Google contest, which was won this year by an 11-year-old. “For our 7th annual Doodle 4 Google competition, we asked kids, grades K-12, to draw an invention that would make the world a better place,” reads the contest page. “Out of more than 100,000 submissions, 250 state finalists, 50 state winners, and 5 national age group winners, we are excited to present the 2014 Doodle 4 Google winner: 11-year old Audrey Zhang of New York!” Audrey’s drawing was of a “transformative water purifier” that would quickly process...
