The community Christmas tree has been a holiday tradition around the United States since the early 20th Century that now spans around the world. Let us celebrate this tradition by modeling one in SketchUp!

You are not limited to just fresh cut or live trees, you may also decorate a structure that a community disguises to create their tree. Use your imagination and don't hold back. If you feel like doing the entire town square, go ahead but don't run out of time.

Mr. Gosselin, a 9th Grade Art teacher, heard about 3D Challenge #331 - Banks and thought it would be a perfect exercise for his students to participate in the challenge. He wrote on our Facebook page to let us know about it and asked if the challenge could be extended to accommodate his teaching schedule. A compromise was reached and it was decided to create a special challenge for his students to allow their work to be voted on and to receive recognition for their work. So here we are...

It's a tie! The winners of SketchUp 3D Student Challenge #001 - Banks are $uperBank by Morgan B. and Majectic Bank by Kaila V.  Congratulations on a job well done and thanks for all the great entries!

SketchUp 3D Challenge #132 - Snowmobiles

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A snowmobile, also known in some places as a snowmachine, or sled, is a land vehicle for winter travel on snow. Designed to be operated on snow and ice, they require no road or trail. Design variations enable some machines to operate in deep snow or forests; most are used on open terrain, including frozen lakes, or driven on paths or trails. Usually designed to accommodate a driver and one passenger, their use is much like a motorcycle and an all-terrain vehicle (ATVs) intended for winter use on snow-covered ground and frozen ponds and waterways. They have no enclosure except for a windshield and their engine normally drives a continuous track or tracks at the rear; skis at the front provide directional control.
 A standard participation rules apply.

SketchUp Diva with Hometown Bank!
Congratulations to SketchUp Diva on her first win and may many future wins follow. The construction progress of her bank was every bit as interesting as the final result. Thanks for participating.
