RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- One Fernley High School student has been named a finalist in Google's national 'Doodle 4 Google' contest. Mackenzie Schneider
, Nevada's finalist for grades 10-12, was one of thousands of students nationwide to "invent one thing to make the world a better place," the contest's theme. According to Google.com, her answer is a selective and friendly 'Smart Fishing Net' that can prevent certain species from being caught, thus lowering the risks of harming marine animals on the endangered species list.
If selected, Schneider
-- and the whole nation -- will see her artwork featured Google's homepage on June 9. Additionally, Mackenzie will receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for her school.
