We’ve held past competitions open to students, and last December we announced the Google Model Your Town Competition, open to people from all over the globe. Folks created geo-located 3D models of their towns in stunning detail, and now it’s time for the 5 finalists to go head-to-head and for the public to vote on which one deserves the distinction of being the top winner.
Online voting is open from April 1 through May 1, 2010. Be sure to look at all the entries in detail on the competition website and then cast your vote for the one you deem to have created the best sense of place. We will announce the winner by May 15, 2010. A team from Google will travel to the winning town this Summer to hold an event for the residents and winners, and the local school district will receive US$10,000.
