"The East Africa Gadget Team was impressed by the quality and level of creativity of the submissions, which did not make it easy for our panel to select the winners," read a statement from Google.
Nzeyimana won US$600 for his Igisoro gadget, a take on the two-player board game that is primarily popular in Rwanda.
Google launched the gadget competition in February and received applications from students at 10 universities in six East African countries, all interested in creating and developing the "next big thing."
"Following several other such competitions around the world, the East Africa contest was the first of its kind," read Google's statement. "The competition gave East African students an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and to combine outstanding creativity and exceptional technical skills."
