Model Your Town

Calling All Sketchup Fans! Google is having a competition just for you! The 2012 Google Model Your Town Competition is currently accepting submissions from anyone who is 13 years or older.

Fame, fortune, and oodles of respect await you. (Ok, maybe just oodles of respect.) All you have to do is use Google Sketchup to create a model of Pleasant Hill. It doesn’t even have to be the entire city; how about just downtown? You might want to begin by seeing what previous winners have created: Previous Competitions. This video shows the 2010 winner talking about the model he created of his town, Barranco, Peru.

This video shows examples from the top five finalists of 2010:

The submission deadline is March 1, 2012, so get started today!

 

P.S. If when reading the first line of this post you read “Sketchup” as “ketchup,” this competition is probably not for you. 🙂
