Winning Town Announced
May 15, 2012
Show your civic pride (and maybe win a prize) by creating a 3D portrait of your community and sharing it with the world. You have the power to get your town on the map – and there's no bigger map than Google Earth.
All you have to do is build 3D models of the buildings in your community. Model whichever structures you think are necessary to show the planet what's special about your town.
Having a 3D model of your town in Google Earth helps residents and visitors understand it in a way that flat maps and photographs can't. You can be a local hero by making a contribution to your town's future.
You can enter on your own or recruit up to five of your fellow citizens to help you form a team, and the software tools you need are free. You must also consult the official rules before you enter.
Check out the details page on teams, modeling and judging criteria, as well as what the winning team will receive! The competition submission deadline is 11:59 PM PST on March 1, 2012.
