And the winners of the Pets for Patriots Challenge are...

For the recent Data for a Cause challenge we worked with Pets for Patriots.

Pets for Patriots helps United States military veterans adopt a new pet friend while giving the most overlooked shelter dogs and cats hope and a home. They have a large network of partners, including veterinary clinics and shelters and they want to show it visually on their website.

The goal of the competition was to build a creative data visualization that maps the partner network.

It's time to announce the winners!

Thank you to everyone who submitted their visualizations and everyone who tried their best to visualize this data set! It was a serious challenge and I'm proud of all the participants!

I want to give a shout out to Kate Brown, Daniel Funes, Gopal Biradar and many others for supporting new #dataforacause participants by commenting, liking and sharing their work on Twitter! We were all new once. Reach out. Offer help. Make them feel welcome!

And always pay close attention to your data. The way one of the addresses was marked in this particular challenge wan't very obvious. I'd like to thank Mark Bradbourne for pointing it out!
