Picture of Mikio and Emi Olin at Google headquarters with Emi holding her national finalist awardEmi Olin, daughter of OIT employee Mikio Olin, has been named a national finalist in the 2014 Doodle 4 Google competition. 

The Alexander Junior High seventh grader's themed illustration of the Google logo, titled "Nature's Cure," was the top entry from Ohio and received the most public votes for the entire sixth-seventh grade age bracket. Olin's "doodle" was one of only five chosen from over 100,000 entries.

The annual competition to redesign Google's logo is open to K-12 students from across the United States. This year's theme was, "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place..."

Google hosted Olin and the other 50 state winners at its California headquarters for a day of art and technology workshops, with the winners being announced at the end of the day. 

Olin will receive a $5000 scholarship from Google and an Android tablet.

The winning doodle was drawn by Levittown, NY fifth grader Audrey Zhang.
