Google Map Your Town Competition Winners Announced

The results of the Map Your Town Competition of GTUG/ GDG (Google Developers Group) Philippines which run from May 16-August 31,2012 are officially in and I am very happy to announce that I am one of their 10 winners. Dear readers I actually topped the competition.. ^^ 

Here is a re-post of the official announcement from GTUG Philippines.


Congratulations to the Map Your Town Competition winners!

In case you haven't heard, mapping volunteers all over the country have kicked off avery ambitious plan to hold at least 80 mapUps in just a few months in order to build a better Philippine map. GDGs and mapping volunteers organized mapUps all over the country: Baguio, Pangasinan, Cebu, Bacolod, Dipolog, and Gensan just to name a few. Some RERs even hiked all the way to Sagada!

We'd like to thank everyone who participated, and we hope you'll continue mapping your towns and cities. Through this initiative, your updates can provide assistance to travelers, visitors, even locals, so that nobody gets lost in the Philippines. That makes traveling more fun, right?

After reviewing all the entries, ten mappers contributed the most number of edits. The top 10 mappers will get a netbook each.  For the top mapper, aside from winning a netbook, Google will be donating P100,000 to a public school of his choice.  Congratulations, Reynard Navarro of South Cotabato!

This win is also for all the South Cotabato Map Makers and the Team Bloppers (SOCCSKSARGEN Bloggers & Mappers). Let's continue mapping!

This is the first ever major competition that I've joined and It feels like my hard work has already been paid off. I am very grateful for the dozens of congratulations I received right after I and some friends posted the announcement on Facebook. Finally a new netbook for me^^, I am also very excited for my public school of choice which Google will be giving P100,000.00 , it will really help a lot of students. I will be announcing my "public school of choice" in my next post. 

Thank you so much Google Map Maker and GTUG/GDG Philippines for the opportunity to promote and help our locality! This win means a lot to me. I'll continue mapping South Cotabato.. :)
