Congratulations to the Map Your Town Competition winners!

In case you haven't heard, mapping volunteers all over the country have kicked off a very 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!
