The first-ever Google Model Your Town Competition has entered the public voting phase. It’s now up to you to help decide which of the five finalist towns should be the overall winner. Cast your vote before May 1.
  • Barranco (Lima, Peru)
  • Braunschweig (Niedersachsen, Germany)
  • Donostia - San Sebasti├ín (Gipuzkoa, Spain)
  • Dursley (Gloucestershire, United Kingdom)
  • West Palm Beach (Florida, United States)


These five teams used Google SketchUp and Google Building Maker to create beautifully detailed 3D models of their communities — and now they’re viewable in Google Earth by everyone in the world. To see all of the towns who entered the competition, check out the Google 3D Warehouse collection.

The winning town will receive an event hosted by Google in their honor, US $10,000 for their local schools and more. Don’t forget to vote by May 1, and we’ll announce the winning town by May 15.
