Update, 6/13/18: All 151 selected applicants have been notified about their status and all remaining Local Guides will hear about their status by June 20th.

 

Over the coming days everyone who applied for this year’s Local Guides event, Connect Live 2018, will receive an email about whether or not they have been selected to attend. I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for submitting their applications and let you know how much fun the team had in reviewing the thousands (yes, THOUSANDS) of applications.

 

We have selected 151 Local Guides to represent the global community at Connect Live 2018. That’s right: you heard it here first that we selected an extra Local Guide to share information back with the community!

 

Every person selected was carefully reviewed by the team and chosen for a very special reason. While some may not share their status just yet, we ask you to be patient as they work through their excitement — and the details.

 

Overall, it was inspiring to see how committed many of you are to the Local Guides community on top of making fantastic contributions to Google Maps: helping your local community by adding new places, creating lists to help others exploring your area, and hosting meet-ups to connect locally, just to name a few. It was fun learning about your specific passions, too. Whether you were one of the vegan foodies, accessibility champions, or rappers (yes, there were rappers!), you help to keep Connect a warm and welcoming place for Local Guides no matter where in the world you may call home.

 

I’m proud to be a Local Guide and I look forward to seeing our global community grow over the coming weeks, months, and years, especially here on Connect.

 

Keep an eye on #LocalGuidesConnect here on Connect and on social media to hear what folks are saying about this year’s event!

    Well said but at the same time don't presume anything. Maybe at eleventh hour you might get an email in your inbox.So stay positive.

    Also thinking little rational I guess there are so many LGs and those who have got the invite they really deserve it, no matter for how many years, months,days or hours they are in LG family.

    It is a difficult task to pick 151 out of so many LG's. I am really happy to have wonderful friends during such a short span which otherwise would never have been possible:)

It's very active in here @deepakjhic. I went to sleep last night at midnight.  This thread was around 43 pages long. Now it's passed 110!  So, hard to "see" with so much chatting going on here.

 

Yes, I did get a Local Guides Connect Live invite yesterday afternoon.

 

Hope you received an invite too. If you have not, please continue to check your inbox. June 20th is a long time from now.  = )

 

Cheers,

Thanks for your nice words. 

 

I am so happy being selected. It will be for sure a memorable experience.

 

I am a bit lost at the moment with a strange feeling. I am so happy being selected and also so sad as some of my best LG friends are not in!

 

I hope there are still some free seats available for some of  you. I will keep the fingers crossed till hope is alive!

 

See you all soon,
