Over 46,000 votes were cast to determine the winner of the 2010 Google Model Your Town Competition from five finalists.
Jorge De Albertis Bettocchi, a 38 year-old corporate business attorney, modeled the Barranco District of Lima in Peru. He entered the competition to generate pride among his fellow citizens and have his 3D models serve as a tool for tourism, promotion, investment, and preservation of Barranco’s historic architecture. In addition, the public schools in the community are in need of financial resources.
A team from Google’s Boulder office visited Jorge and the Barranco community to recognize
his efforts. Congratulations, Jorge!
