An 11-year-old New York girl was behind Monday's intricate Google Doodle, a design that won her a $30,000 scholarship in the company’s seventh annual competition that asked kids to come up with ideas to make the world better and, of course, incorporate the Google logo.

Audrey Zhang’s Doodle 4 Google entry was one of more than 100,000 the company received in this year’s competition, Google said.

Audrey's school, Island Trees Memorial Middle School, received a $50,000 technology grant, and Google was so impressed with the girl’s desire to bring clean water to the world that the company donated $20,000 in her name to charity:water.

The complicated doodle features a machine that purifies water, surrounded by a forest of creatures and plants. It is featured on Monday’s Google home page.

"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," Zhang wrote on her entry.

In a video and story on its website, Google said they invited Zhang to join their illustrators to animate parts of her drawing, the first time they’ve done that for one of these competitions.

“As an animator and director for a day, she made sure we twinkled each light and cleaned the water just right and took extra care for the illustration’s dragons — about whom she is also writing a novel,” Google said.

Google highlighted the winners on its website, including “My Time Machine” by Charles Seagle, Mokulele Elementary School, Hawaii, who won in the K-3rd category; “Nature’s Cure” by Emi R. Olin, Alexander High School, Ohio, 6-7th grade; “Brighter World through Binoculars” by Renaise Kim, Lake Washington High School, Washington, 8-9th grade; and “Ideatriever” by Amy Carlson, Burlington High School, Iowa.
